About 6-7 weeks ago my pure choco. lab had 13 puppies with a Black Lab, Rottie. (or something) mix. The runt, Lillian, has kind of grown on me. The mutt in her is so deluted I'm thinking of using her as a bird dog. Problem is, I don't know how the heck to train one. My dad, is not impressed with her at all, in fact he tried to switch her collar with the little female he wants problem was, "his" puppy was so much bigger than she was I could tell it wasn't her at all. Anyway, he has alot of experiance with breeding hunting dogs, and picking the best puppy out of a litter. But I've spent every day of these puppies lives with them, and I believe she will make a fine bird dog. I need some tips to get a head start on her training. I know I could ask my dad for help but I want to prove myself as much as I want to prove Lilly. Any bird dog breeders out there want to help me?
