im not sure if yall deal with dog training, but my brittany is around 9 weeks old and my problem is that he will point a wing and a dead bird but will not a live bird. also if i plant a dead bird in the bushes and he walks by, he is instantly pointing but with a live bird he will walk right over it .does anyone know what the problem is? i realize he is very young and that could very well be the problem but any input would be much appreciated.

I think he is to young right now, but using a wing to keep him interested would be good.

slow down buddy, socialization is the best thing for him right now. Dont worry about the pointing, it will come

Let him be a puppy... His natural instincts (with a lil help from dad and some birds) will enhance his talents greatly later on.

Just remember, baby steps.
