Bracco Italiano
« on: August 10, 2019, 01:55:05 PM »
At the end of the month my 14 year old son and I will drive to Utah and pick up his Braccco Italiano puppy. This will be my sonís dog to train and hunt pal around with. Tony Bricker has been so great to work with I really hope this dog will be a good fit for my son

Narrowing it down probably one of these two.
My boy has read more in the last two days than he has all summer. He pretty much recited 3 chapters of the green book to me tonight.

I shipped one over from the east coast this winter. We love her! I canít wait to hunt over her this fall. 👌🏻 You guys will be so happy. Theyíre an amazing breed.

Have you done much training. How has your pup responded to birds? My son is super excited, I showed him your response and it just fueled his fire.  :tup:

She has been bird crazy since day one! Itís bread into them, just like any other hunting breed. She is currently at the trainer and they are saying she has been doing great. I get to go next month and start shooting over her. I canít Wait. Iíve never used a trainer before, always trained my own hunting dogs. But I really wanted to make sure it was done correctly and I was short on time with a hectic summer work schedule. Iíll try to post pics as she progresses.

That's awesome, I was about 14 when I got my hunting dog. That's a great time to have some responsibility thrust on you and a fun companion to boot. Hope he enjoys it as much as I did.

So far it has been a great experience. We had her swimming a bunch this weekend and we introduced a little tracking with a piece of lamb fat at the end. My son is doing well with the responsibility portion.
They have bonded so well, she follows him around everywhere!

Her first bird hunt went great. We took a short hike and my son stayed back 100 yards. She really wanted in on any action she could get. Iím really excited about this dog.
