Our dogs are trained on planted and wild birds. This abundance of game allows them to experience many hunting situations. In addition to bird work, they are trained to work out of blinds and boats.
Dogs work year round. Summer and.....
The most enjoyable time is when we run all of the dogs at once and share their happy, spaniel questing!
Although, as a general rule when hunting, we use only 2-3 AWS at a time.
