Well this week the wee fella officially, in my mind at least, became a Gun dog.

Eldest joined me on the local shoot ground and over a distance of 150m, he fired off half a dozen shots as me & "H" worked our way across the carrot park towards him. "H" never bothered himself at all when the gun was fired, though I was getting him to sit when a shot was fired.

5 months old, steady to shot, stopping and returning on the whistle, retrieving to hand both training dummy & cold game and finally working his own little "pattern" when allowed to hunt.

He & he are going to get along fine ;D

He's turned into a seat stealer . . .


And an update on his progress - Took him to his first shoot this morning, just to experience the goings on. "Not bovvered" was his general demeanour, till someone brought down a bird. The other two dogs were along for some confidence boosting and I think it was the big spaniels reaction to the downing of a bird that got the little ones interest.
He got ever more excited when the big dog retrieved the bird. Short outing, but he was pooped when we got home after no more than an hour outdoors.

Well, who'd have thought it. 7 months old today. Took him to the shoot this afternoon with the intention of letting him hunt in an area where there was game scent.
Joined the guys as they walked up a short strip of cover - nice and open for the most part, with bits of cover here and there, so it was easy to keep an eye on the pup at all times.
Working along side and old spaniel, he did his own thing, covering the ground in a good pattern. After no more than 50yds he comes upon scent. His tail goes into overdrive as he works into some cover . . . . . . . and out pops a pheasant.  He moves, but stops on the whistle as the bird flies off - RESULT. Well impressed with the little chap.

He popped another bird towards the end of the cover . . . . and moved on it . . . . . only to find himself in a water filled drain  :o I had to pull him out as the sides of the drain were vertical.
That'll be his introduction to water completed as well then  ;D

Great working start to the young fellas working life  ;D

Thought I'd ressurect this thread, seeing as I've gone and done it again!

Dog number 4 please step forward . . . . one Welsh bred Cocker spaniel pup named "D"

Collected him from my nephew on Monday and then drove the 570 miles home - not a squeak or a wee or a poo - result  ;D

The collective have made him feel at home - he can already bounce up onto any of the seats in the house without any help, to join them as they chill  ::)

More photo's to follow  ;D

Eldest pup is 15 months old, whilst youngest is 6 months old.

This is them this afternoon having been introduced to some fresh road kill.

It was taken after H's 1st retrieve of a dead bird and D's sniff of any bird.
