    I think I feel confident enough in Roy and I's yard work to run him before our season ends.

    Robert: With your shooting prowess and now two pointers, the pheasants won't have a chance!

    Congrats on the new dog - looking forward to seeing them work. Maybe you can produce a video for us?

    It's been a while since I've given a Roy update. After much hair pulling he's really settled in around the house and is a nice dog to be around. He's also really turning it on in the field with a nice run, a strong nose, and much style on point. He's really going to be a fine dog I think.

    Robert - thanks for the update and photo. Assume the strap around his rear end is a shock collar...how does that work for him?

    Good looking dog!

    It is an e collar. It's used to enforce the "whoa" command. Basically it's an extension of a check cord half hitch around the flank, that's how I started his whoa in the yard so the flank collar is an easy transition that he understands, pressure on the flank means whoa. To be clear whoa and or the flank collar is never used around birds for me, I expect my dogs to find and handle their birds with no inour on my part.

    Roy made good on his first real hunt. He nailed a group of sage grouse about 200yds up on a bench and held them like a broke dog until I got there. I held up my end of the deal and took a double over his stylish point.
