Default New puppy in training

After a few name changes early on. Ollie is the name we went with for our new Pointer puppy.
Went out yesterday and started live pigeon work. Ollie is 15 weeks and has really ben progressing well. Ran her down wind from a pigeon with a card board trailer. Very happy with her pointing.
This Friday she will start her check cord work along with two of her litter mates.
With a little luck and training she will be ready to hunt Quail this December.
The other little white Pointer ( without a collar ) was born deaf. My hunting partner was going to put it down but decided to see if he could train it. If anyone can Dave will.
Itís a smart little girl. Lots of drive, very alert, bold, and great nose. Rather than train to a whistle we will train to the vibration on a Garmin collar.

Heck, that puppy doesn't even know he's deaf.... he'll train just fine, just with different methods.

Young dogs train very easily and quickly to hand signals.

When we were down at the southern we shot at Drakes Landing and Dan (the owner) also has a English Pointer pup that is deaf that the owner of the kennel wanted to put down. Dan said no and he is training it the same way on a collar with vibration.

I will post pictures and updates from time to time as well as their first wild bird finds. Nothing like a new puppy to remember during the off season why we love our hunting dogs.

Nothing like starting a new pup and watching everything click and kick in. Another memory maker in the works.

You are right. I am also getting a little smarter. I had two pointers when I retired in March 7 years ago. Before bird season I lost both of them.
One was 12 and the other 14. Luckily for my hunting partner he gave me one trained 1 1/2 year old Pointer and I traded him a 20 gauge reproduction for her sister. I now have 4 English pointers with this pup and a ( lab my daughters)
Maybe a few more than I need but I sure enjoy them.
