RE: Is it possible to have a housepet hunting dog?

I use my spoiled, couch-potato, bed-hogging Chessies to hunt most upland and some waterfowl. House dogs not being able to hunt is over-stated.

Congrats for you and your dog. Labs are awesome! Remember, exposure, exposure, exposure and the more you take him hunting, the better he will become. Just expect a few minor "hiccups" along the way.
