Have a question

Postby misarcher » Sat Nov 03, 2007 10:50 pm

I dont know much about this so I'll ask.....
Can you teach any dog to hunt? I know you'd need a smaller dog to say rabbit hunt, and you wouldn't want a small dog to go and fetch birds outa the water...lol but could you teach a mutt to help you track, bird hunt, and just hunt in general?
Just wondering......

You can teach almost any dog almost any thing. I have worked with a lt of dogs and there are those breeds that work better for most situations just because of the way they are built but any dog can be trained to any job as long as the dog can physically do it. Good luck.
If you always do what you have always done ,
you will always be what you have always been.

Any dog

It's all about what "they" call "Fetch Drive." You can find out how well the dog can be trained when they are real young. it's called fetch drive. If your puppy will fetch something that you throw and bring it back, that shows a natural drive to work and please the handler.
Many animals were harmed during the making of this hunter!!

That's funny, I was actually just looking at this product the other day, it's actually a blind for your dog! Haha.

I love taking my dog along for the hunt obviously but I'm not sure he needs his own blind...
