Well next weekend I'll be chasing birds for the last time this year. Tear comes to my eye just writting this. Gona give the little bitt, 2 months off. What do you guys do with your dogs in the off-season? She's almost a year old now and I want to do more than just some road work with her.
Should I try keeping a few live birds to work her with once and a while? Or just work on basic obediance drills? What's you guy's scerets?

Our wild bird season here in MI has been over for some time. Preserves are always an option....they help control cabin fever for both dog and hunter for a while. You can also get some pigeons and plant them and use them to reinforce commands such as "whoa" & "fetch", and it helps give thier nose a workout.
You can also do yard new skills while reinforcing old ones; it certainly makes for less swearing come opening day! Good luck & good training!

In KY, our ruffed grouse and crow season ends on Feb. 28th. Afterwards, I use homers during the off-season and do a lot of water work, so that my dogs stay in shape.

Looking for strong breeding contract for breeding my 3 yr old Golden this spring.
Has great pedigree, looking for sire to match.

what's a good contract to sign with sire's owner before breeding takes place?.

Brddog, how about a pick of the litter and a handshake. That's how we do it in Georgia.
