I stop over for a short visit to Black Creek Training center to ask Justin about his month in Montana, and ask some questions that I needed answers to. Based on my season so far, I have done almost everything correct. Well... correct until I get Justin's take on things, Put it this way If the baby Jesus was a hunting dog, Justin would be one of the 3 wise men. Enjoy and learn..
I'm back at Black Creek Training Center with Justin Mcgrail. We cover myths about what to do, and what not to do with your bird dog. Many old sayings become local fact or sometimes the gospel accorrding to Saint Dog Trainer. Most of these do come with a grain or two of truth. We cover Whoa posts, picking pups, field trial, neutering, steady training, old dogs teaching young dogs, never train your pointer to sit!!! along with a few random stories of the field. and that myth of all myths "My dog never lost a cripple"
Justin McGrail from Black Creek Training Center, joins me to talk about his approach to training,and hunting, both his dogs and his clients. I have brought several of my personal dogs to him, for various stages of training. Black Creek is first class facility with top shelf training grounds. We talk about starting a pup, wild birds vs pen raised, hunting in Montana and Kansas, shitty shoots and memorable retieves. and much more
This episode is with Ronnie Smith, of the famous Delmar Smith family of dog trainers. Ronnie answers some listeners questions, along with giving great advise on when he starts a pup on birds, force fetching, porcupines, deer chasing pointing dogs, and when and how to use an E collar. if you dont find something from this interview to take in and use for your dog, you might want to get a hearing aid!!!!
