The heat isn't our friend for sure. I have been having to keep outing short and to the point. Safer for the dog and the birds.

My wife doesn't think the ROOing is adorable. I did at first and started realizing my encouraging of that communication in the house was going to have poor results...I try to ignore it now and the PP seems to only bring it out at feeding time now! The other I learned about my PP was she sounds off when ever she sights fur. The first time I was saying "What the hell?" but learned since it is a breeding trait some of the Germans look for. I guess they use the barking to locate the dog in the woods as it chasing the prey so that they are ready for the shoot when it runs by.
You never have to tell a dog what time to be home, give them the keys, and they never ask for money.

My PP chops when on live fur each time his front feet hit the ground. He bays when he hems it up, if he can not dispatch and retrieve it. No vocalizing on birds or blood.

Tess was scent loud and doing a heck of a job running a rabbit in SD Saturday morning :). The DD folks would have busted their buttons! She squared off face to face with a Badger as I was yelling NO!!! and scrambling for my transmitter. Badger is lucky Spud was not on the ground.

Yeah it's an inherited trait.
In many German clubs scent loud or sight loud are desired traits (DK or DD) or even a must in case of the longhairs.
In a pure upland hunting it may not be useful, but when it's a recovery hunt and the game is too big to be picked up and retrieved the dog must sit and bark until the master finds him.
In cases like this some smart dogs even pick up a wood rod, attached to the collar, and then they return back to the hunter and guide him to the dead game. I have no clue how to teach that to a dog. Must be really hard.

Ones I met a guy in Upstate NY who hunts a grouse with his GWP in the thick covers of NY and NH. He said that when a dead bird happens to drop somewhere on a tree the dog goes out, finds the bird, sits by the tree and starts barking until he gets there and gets the bird. He said the dog started doing it by himself without him teaching it.
