Now that their eyes are open, it's time for some bird work. Here is a brace working their first covey. :D

Higgins Gundogs hunting etiquette:

Dogs: Stay in touch and handle well. Always honor another dog's point, be steady when necessary and manage the birds for the gun.
Handlers: Be silent in the hunt. Allow the dog the freedom to do his work. Nurture the natural retrieve.

They are never “too” young.

Here is a link to the video on Youtube. The birds in the video are 2 week old quail.

This is a recent litter of our Higgins Gundog pups. Now that their eyes are open, it's time for bird work. Here is Chubbs working his first covey. Got a couple of the black pups showing off their bracework too. These are the offspring of our imported Pointers.

Enjoy
