New here !! And to versatile gun dogs !!!

Postby FarNorth » Fri Apr 02, 2021 12:53 am

New to the forum and new to versatile gun dogs ! I trained Labs /golden retrievers years ago and ran in Akc /Ukc hunt test Before moving to Alaska .
My new Deutsch Drahthaar pup is 4weeks old and will be about 4 more weeks until i get him . His name will be Quigley, and we will be doing a lot of hunting and testing in Vdd-gna/NAVHDA.
I am really looking forward to getting back into it and training for versatility Vs just retrieving !!!!

Welcome. Alaska has some pretty nice training options. Especially the DD breeders. A new NAVHDA group is being formed and Arctic Bird Dog Asso. Are great places to start. The versatile dog is so much fun to train and work with. I’m sure your past experience with retrievers will help.

Nice looking pup! I'm jealous...
You never have to tell a dog what time to be home, give them the keys, and they never ask for money.
