Default 60 Seconds to Preserve a Sport Dog Training Area

Please take one minute and email Colorado State Parks at the following link. Tell them you support Plan B for Chatfield.

Chatfield and Cherry Creek State Parks established Dog Training Areas over 20 years ago where Sportsmen could have a place to train their hunting dogs. Non hunting users have been allowed to encroach on those areas recently to the point where there exist a high level of conflict. The State Parks solution- is to entirely eliminate all Sportsmen at Cherry Creek from using the area and manage it as a dog park. And severely reduce Sportsmen's access at Chatfield ceding the bulk to other users (dog walkers).
From State Parks web site- "There is no plan to close the two dog training areas or eliminate other users". Really?
Here are the numbers.
Cherry Creek Dog Training Area 85 acres- Acres for Sportsmen under Plans A, B, and C- 0
Non sporting users- all 85 acres.

Chatfield Dog Training Areas 74.5 acres- Acres for Sportsmen under plans A, B and C (*see note below)- 8.5 acres of the least desirable part of the Dog Training Area with no water. The other users would get 66 acres and all the water. In other words, Sportsmen would get a total of 8.5 acres or about 5% of the total of the two properties and non sporting users 95%. Sound fair, equitable, especially given the fact they were intended for Sportsmen?

The second stage is the human socialization phase, which is roughly from week seven through week twelve. During this stage the puppy should be taken from the litter and socialized with you (human beings). Some suggest that day 49 is the magic day. This may be so, but if you can't pick up the pup on that exact day, as long as the breeder has started human socialization in earnest and is concerned for the pups proper development and giving them the one-on-one contact they need, you should be ok. That said, they should definitely not be left with the litter too long. I have seen dogs left in the litter too long and they never fit well in the human world. They are very difficult to deal with and need to be placed in just the right home to succeed. Even then, they are always difficult.

I believe that this is the period where you can have the most impact on your dog. This is where you need to put in the time to build the correct foundation for a confident, happy, dog that loves to work birds (or whatever task you ask of him). During this period, it is critical to spend time with the puppy and interact. Make positive, happy eye contact as often as possible with the pup. If there ever is a time not to lock the dog in a run out back and leave them for days on end, this is it. Putting pup in the run or crate for a short time is ok, but seek to maximize your interaction with the pup during this short, but critical period.
