Promising Gordon Setter!

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Any Gordon Setter fan around here?

 

I´ve always been a pointing dog one, specially setters (mostly English). Last spring I got a Gordon Setter pup from good working lines.

He is now a 9 month old pup and he is really nuts about red legged partridges (real wild and brave ones) and woodcocks. This season was suposed to be just an introductory lesson to him, but he is indeed a precoucious dog!

Our first day after partridges he retrieved his first one ever at the age of only 5.5 months. Since then he has been behaving like a bird addict, really obsessed in finding them. He is tireless throughout the hunting day and his nose is incredible. His pointing instinct is also innate, being a true show for everyone every time we go for a walk since I live in the city centre and we´re surrounded by pigeons!!

 

Obviously he still commits a bunch of mistakes while hunting, but they are all mostly related to the passion he has for birds and the strength he has gained, something I just have to work on with patience but hey, in the end that was my target when I chose him from a top working line.

 

He is surprising my hunting mates with his youth and quick learning, specially being a male. I am really happy with him.

 

Here are some images, hope you like them!.

 

Cheers!

Thank you very much.

 

Pointing dogs are very demanding when it comes to training but every little step they advance is so exciting...

Lovely dog mate, I don't know where you would actually begin to look for a Gordon setter that has an inclination to work over here.

I must say that it really amazes me how british pointing dog numbers (exclude the useless show ones please) have dropped down so much in Britain. I mean, come on, it is the cradle of top specialised working dogs!

 

I guess there´s surely a reason (or more) why this is happening.

I´d really like to know your opinion on this.

 

Cheers.
