  1. Your mates a prick, that's not how they work. The dog needs to be basically trained before using one, so it 100,000,000% knows the command so you can re-inforce it. The collar aint for training a dog.
  2. I think you honestly have to consider her working ability. Surprised no one has even mentioned it yet. Is she working to a standard that exceed a lot of other dogs of her breed? does she have any faults? what will she contribute to the breed that you couldn’t find from buying a pup? Don't take offence mate, it’s a serious consideration. Almost everyone with a “working dog” will tell you it’s a great worker but it’s not always the case. On top of that breeding isn’t without its risks. Bitches losing pups, losing the bitch, complications, emergency Caesarians all happen and I personally know lads who’ve had the above. It soon turns the romance of a litter into a nightmare. I honestly think the vast majority of people would be better off just buying a pup in.
  3. Thanks mate was in rabbit pen yday and by the end was getting solid contact flushes and the dog sitting up and watching them away
  4. Can anyone advise me their method of getting a spaniel rock solid on the stop whistle even on the flush please? I had mine out this week on a training day, birds were flushing either side of him, just a few feet away, and he sat and watched them shot and retrieved by other dogs no problem. Issue is, when he gets a solid contact flush himself, such as pushing the bird off the end of his own nose, or right past his face, he will break and give chase. So far I have just been running him down, dragging him back to the stop and scruffing him on the spot whilst blowing the stop whistle. I cna throw dummies and balls past him all day long and he will stop, but in the field is another game. thanks
  5. You don't need to add carbs you need to add more kcals, easiest from fat. Crack an egg over the meals your already feeding. Add a spoon of oil, add a tin of fish, add some beef dripping or goose fat. Add salmon oil. Just feed a larger quantity of what your already feeding.
  6. A mate and I are trying to do just that, how did you find best to trap and transport them?
  7. Jesus 1/2 mile memory... long walk back if the dog forgets Baz lol
  8. What type of thing you do mate? Just lead walking? What distance / time? Ive not done much with mine previously but he’s coming up 15 months now and needs some more fitness. I was up early this morning and we did a big walk round the block at a brisk pace and then did 3 separate bouts of stopping at some cover and hunting intensely for a bit.
  9. Your supposed to sit in the basket and put the dog on the bike you lemon!
  10. Thats the type I’m after mate what attachment is that?
  11. When cycling with dogs, do you use a specialist attachment that goes onto the seat post?
  12. Is this only for running dogs or can it be used for spaniels (or other gundogs) to get into top condition as well?
  13. What you guys doing to get your dogs really fit and ready to go for the season?
  14. I thought it was a bloody leggy cocker don’t worry
  15. Then the OP is not feeding enough of it. You can feed the best food in the world but if the dog doesn’t get enough kcals (you don’t feed a big enough quantity of that food) the dog won’t put no weight on.
