well you see,when a mummy pig dog and a daddy pig dog like each other very much and owners back is turned for half a second.....it just happens Grin Grin Grin Grin
seriously plenty of folks have pups coming along all the time. Bill Westwood here in Geraldine will possibly know of some as does the hunting club scene....
most fellas in club scene will know of good pups coming along soon.

For training them Iím stuffed if I know what to say.
Down south thereís Bill Westwood. Iíd happily use him because he trains the hunter as well as the dog.
Up north here thereís the Kautaís at Opotiki, but he doesnít take the hunter along as well, so you canít see how heís training the dog to be able to carry it on.
To be honest, if I was starting with just a young dog, Iíd probably find a mate to get it started, then book a chopper into somewhere like Motu or Te Urewera where thereís some pigs that donít run far.
Even if pup wasnít performing thereís still deer to hunt so Iíd still be guaranteed a good trip.

the reason i ask is that i just cant find a young dog at the moment they used to be dime a dozen i have two 3year old dogs that are pretty decent been catching a few pigs and it just seems like a bit of a waste not training a young dog at the same time

Hunting season is the wrong time to look for pig dogs. Everyone is running them.
Best time is end of winter when hunters start weeding their dogs our . Or during the summer time when guys arte breeding pups for next winter..
