Hi i have a 12 week old GSP male have only had him a couple days but he doesn't seem interested in a wing or anything to do with a dummy is this something that i should be worried about? i have never had a pointer before i have always just trained coon hounds so this is new to me... should he be pointing already or will that come in time? thank you for all your time
Why would he point a wing or a dummy? It's not a bird. Remember these dogs point with their noses, or at least they should.
Get him on real birds and see what happens, then worry
what kind of birds should i get him on pigions quail or straight to pheasants? and i worked more with him today and he is pausing/pointing before he gets the wing so that is a good improvement i think. and i will get a pic soon
Then it's time for pigeons so that they go up and stay up and he stops being able to catch. My recommendation is to look up Perfection Kennels and order their "Perfect Start" videos and follow their protocol. It is NOT a crisis that he's caught a few, but I would do all you can to keep that from continuing to happen or he will stop pointing.
