Hi guys, just picked up a new pup. So am in full training mode.
His name is Gunner been with us a week and has settled in real nice.
Kept the neighborhood awake the first couple of nights which was a bit harrowing.
I will be using him if all goes well pointing deer and fetching ducks. Will keep you informed.
Hard to train him to come, as he wants to be by me the whole time.🙂

Hungarian Vizsla 6/8
Lab 1/8
Springer Spaniel 1/8

He seams to be a good little dog, in saying that he went to his kennel before training finished last night. Was just to excited  and didn't want to listen.

Hi again, with a name like DHDShooter I imagine youve got a heap of training experience under your belt and more than one dog trained to a level your happy with. Its great to have someone post about a new dog again and offering to keep us up to speed on how its going.

That comment of yours about '' Was just to excited  and didn't want to listen'' reminded me of some young dogs that are just so driven theyll start to shiver as you put them on the line. Its anticipation and high drive all rolled into one. Im sure shell do you proud given time.

I was gonna ask if his ears were painted on  Grin
It's very early days with him yet so I wouldn't get too worried about him getting distracted or wanting his dinner a bit early Smiley

To be honest HC, I have never had a true pup. I went with my mate about 12 years ago who was interested in some dogs. I ended up coming home with one he didn't. They were six months old. I had been hunting for about 3 years and apart from a guy where I was duck shooting I knew no one with a hunting dog.

I didn't want to fence my section so spent the better part of the day at the front of the house trying to guess which side of the house the dog was coming down, then would send it back. Never fenced him in or tied him up and he was never allowed in the house. For those that think I was mean, I would often throw my sleeping bag outside and sleep out with the dog. (Single then).

This pup is going to be different and I will train differently but I still expect a great dog just like my old Buzz.

Cheers Rugerman, I agree with your assessment of the situation, all round lovely pup. Its funny a lot of people don't get a dog for the end game
They say things like "oh it's a pity they don't stay like that" or "I would get a pup but they turn into dogs". I actually want a dog, that is well trained and a great asset.

Just to pick up on something else you said HC, I know the dog section can get really crazy and it can end up post at you perial. I will keep posting, and post my mistakes so others can learn. I also love advice that I can sort through and pick up tips but I will stop posting if it turns into some massive  argument about technique and whatnot.

Yep I've found you get out what you put in with training.I haven't trained any dogs for hunting, but for general obedience and a few "tricks" I've found that some dogs are keener than others to learn. Of course they all want to please you but some are not so keen on repeating the same actions over and over.

Oh and your right about the dog section, it has a bit of history of turning into a crap fest. I think if everyone treats each other with respect and doesn't rubbish contributions, then even the most experienced can pick up alternative ways to do things and might even learn something new Smiley

Me, I'm always trying to learn from other peoples' mistakes so I can avoid making the same mistakes myself.

Pups are great fun. Enjoy. We have 1/4 springer in our two dogs and I really rate them for biddability and temperament. Springers are cracking little dogs. A mate has  visla bitch pup and he loves it. He is the best dog man I have ever met. He said that his is sensitive but extremely loyal. Just wants to be with him. Labs...... well labs are labs. Generally placid and nice to be around. Yours is an interesting mix and hopefully does all you want it to. Am sure you will have a lot of fun. Enjoy. That is what it is all about at the end of the day. Wink

Picking up a 3/4 lab 1/4 spaniel pup in a couple of weeks as the old lab weimaraner is starting to slow up.  The Bitch is 1/2 and 1/2 lovely dog and proven hunter. Fingers crossed

This little fella is becoming my little buddy quite quickly, he is doing well and is keen to please, but I hear ya about not wanting to do the same actions over again.
I am using it to try and keep his temperament calm. Have heard a few horror stories about Hungarian vizsla's, about been way to excited. He is an excitable little chap.
