WPG trainer?
« on: July 04, 2017, 10:28:28 AM »
Hi HuntWA, we have a 14-mo Wirehaired Pointing Griffon who is sharp as a tack and showing lots of promise. Basic obedience stuff to date and got him on wild birds last year. Looking for some formal training as it is that time and I don't have the space for birds, field work and shooting (in city limits), etc. Time is a premium too.

Looking for:
Steady to wing/shot
Force retrieve
Exposure to lots of birds

Any recommendations?

Richard from tuxedo kennels is great trainer that has trained quite a few WPGs. He is pretty well rounded so he can handle everything a versatile would need.

 I agree with Addicted, put your hairy dog on Richard's chain gang in MT. If you want it to see wild birds, he's the right guy for the job.

My pup is with Richard and heading off to MT soon to get on the wild birds. Any advice on what to do because I miss him so much? I don't even want to come home from work because he is t there to greet me.

Best choice you have ever made for that dog is sending him east. As far as missing him, get another one!!! Not sure if your spouse will agree but two is better than one.
