What does this gathering entail? My cocker isn't much of a retriever, but I don't know if he's trainable at 5. I wouldn't want to put the e collar juice to him.

Basically there is a gathering of retriever folks to train together using the clubs equipment and birds. By retrievers that doesn't mean just labs and goldens. You will see several different breeds. Boykins, poodle, flat coats, puddle pointer... There is a WWHRC member with 2 field cockers that trains with the club. Idk if he will be there tomorrow though. If you've had your interest peaked come on out and see what it's about.
Some choose to train without an ecollar in the club, so you won't be alone. There are all levels of skilled dogs and handlers. It'd be a good intro into hunt tests and seeing what levels of performance there are. Lunch is provided and your first time out and everything is free!

Do you hunt with your cocker?

Yes my cocker is a hunter. He gets the birds up, but when I shoot them, about anything can happen next. He may go find the bird and bring it back, or he may go find the bird and tear it to shreds. He may find it, lick it a couple times and go back to hunting. Or he may completely ignore the fact that I dropped the bird he flushed. I'm not hard core, and don't expect anything close to perfection out of him. It would be nice to get him retrieving birds as well as he does balls, toys! etc. I may swing by tomorrow and check it out. If I do, do I need to bring a shotgun? Thanks.

No need for a gun. The club had many and we only shoot blanks. We don't much upland training. So this is more along the lines of duck hunting.

I get that a lot. He's actually an English field cocker out of Covey Flush kennels in Georgia. Probably a lot like a Boykin, but maybe a little smaller. He's 30-31 pounds. He's very active and athletic, but very gentle.

Since the common theory of the Boykin's origin is a field cocker crossed with an American Water Spaniel (the mystery dog on those long ago South Carolina church steps?)...Yes, there is a resemblance. Being a breeder of Boykins, I'm sure you have noticed some strains with a more EFC coat and others with a coat not much different from an AWS.

I recall one old time breeder of AWS remarking, "We would ship our AWS pups South and they would end up with docked tails and suddenly be called Boykins..."
" America will never be destroyed from outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
