no no no we like the" tell it as you see it", we dont like the way your comments sound a tad patronizing,
and condescending especially as you dont even know the bloke

dazzz

breath in, clear your head and read the topic heading again,then try other words other than patronising and condescending- certainly not !
"cocker love" an expression,certainly not of the personal nature aimed at Timber.

Now pal, don`t know what back ground your from, Lurchers i presume ? Slip and run/kill anything brigade, or the trained all round mouching dog.
Your entry and goals for your dog will probably differ.
My self progressed through the ranks of Lurchers in the same era of the then younger Phil Lloyd and the famous Minshaws Blue Lurcher !!.Reaching the pinnacle of my sport entering and winning the various Lurcher obedience competitions.
Now working gundogs and trials is my game ( yes in that order ).
So Moving on to your Cocker situation,if you have decent common sense and basic understanding of canines, by all means move into the gundog world.The good thing about the gundog world is that there are not as many variables as in the lurcher working world.It`s pritty much the case that you will find a dog that will suit your needs, retrievers for retrieving,spaniels for hunt,flush, then retrieve.Just like all working dogs,they function on prey drive.
If you do not have access to glean knowledge from an unbiased trialing man for the best lines for your needs,you will have a long task ahead of you finding the right dog to start of with.For example you won`t want a hot / hard going dog for your first project. Oh yes it does matter ! The amount of clowns out there who don`t understand a pedigree is unbelievable,so do your homework,select from lines of easily trained parents,all because it`s got Ftch in it`s pedigree does not mean it was easy to train.
There are Gundog people and people who also bluff under the same banner,just like the lurcher world,

Gud luck !

OK KEV BUT COME ON.....
"Now pal, don`t know what back ground your from, Lurchers i presume ? Slip and run/kill anything brigade, or the trained all round mouching dog"
THAT IS CONDESCENDING IS IT NOT??

AND Phil LLOYD IS STILL YOUNG......WELL AT HEART ANYWAY LOL (sorry Phil)

and then "Stick in there kid !" Timber is defo not young enough to be called kid. (he's nearly as old as lloydy)
not falling out Kev i do enough of that about lurchers.

Just got my first gundog myself mate but I would have no interest in a trial ( still like to watch them just as I like to watch any dog at its work) but I reckon all the fun is in the training and then hopefully getting some satisfaction from the end result ( however you chose to apply it)

One things for sure, it sure beats the hell out of trying to train a saluki and is much better for the nerves!! Lol lol

A Very Sad time.

This bitch has contributed a massive amount to her progenies successes and achievements.I`ve had a fair few dogs in my time, my own dogs relation to her on Sire side.He has been the most biddable dog to train and the best dog i have ever shot over.
Cherish the memories.

Take care.
