    Default My new dog

    I had planned on starting a new springer in the new year but I had an opportunity to pick up a litter mate to my Lady dog and decided to take a chance. He's almost two and needs a ton of work but hopefully Lady and I can make something of him. Meet Roy, my new setter dog.

    Congrats Robert! I'm really happy for you. And those are two beautiful Setters. Good luck with Roy. Hope I get a chance to see the pair here in SD some day.

    Took Roy out for a walk through some of his new cover Saturday. Lady and my brother's dig Bud produced a few birds. Once I can get Roy to recall he'll get off the lead and run.

    Been a journey with Roy. We basically started at the beginning with the understanding that he is a 2 year old puppy. I think we've got our very basic commands here, heel, and whoa down in the yard and I'm going to transition him into an e collar. Going to put some pigeons in a bird launcher for him and with any luck I might get to hunt him a bit before our season ends.

    Sounds like he is coming along nicely, just out of curiosity did he have any exposure to hunting proir to you getting him? I kinda assume no as you rederred to him as a 2yo pup. Anyway you have a fine set of setters!

    I think he had bird and gun intro, maybe even hunted a little but he just had no obedience at all or anything so we went back to the beginning. He shows some point. He's a really nice dog, good attitude, well put together, and very handsome.
