Re: Should i let me Brittany actually play with and catch a live bird

If I were you...I'd go back and re-read Ray's post. I run the same type dog Ray does, except they're britts. Prey drive is not an issue, therefore I don't let them catch birds. Have helped friends with low prey drive dogs that we've let catch birds to build them up. Now watching a pup bump and chase...

Re: Rabbit Hunting with Drahthaar

If they're bored my britts love to point bunnies. I can tell the difference.
In my case it would be point, flush, shot, run and get the bunny before they tear it apart.
This would open up a squirrel opportunity as well.
Birds would be largely forgotten.

Re: A little venting about my neighbor. Not that interesting

Well said Ray.

Lots of ways to train/work bird dogs. Educate yourself and do what works for you and your situation. I regularly use carded birds to good effect, especially with young dogs.

If it's not a wild bird, it's all "phony" to some degree. That doesn't make it wrong.
