Default 2015 Dogs in the field!





Just thought this would be fun, and a thread that could continue until seasons end. Im sure some of you have already taken some action shots of your dogs this year. Well.... Post up pics or videos of your dogs in the field!

Maybe we could set up a vote at the end of the season on the best pic?!?!

First non training birds Bella has had so far in this early part of the season. Marks well and takes commands well. Even has a tendency to submerge herself when aTeal decides to dive on her

First pup I've ever owned. Trained him myself and I think we both have learned a lot. Awesome discipline from day one and great with commands just needs to get more of a drive but that'll come! Weighing 87 pounds and not quite a year old I have my hands full!

Got one of Avery being sassy this past weekend on her first duck hunt. Unfortunately, the teal we scouted either bailed, or decided to not come back to this hole. She still had fun watching all the wood ducks buzzing through

Enjoy those dogs while you can. Retiring my last one this season. Got 13 seasons out of her, about half with only one eye. The will is still there but the back legs won't do it.

Mine made it 13 years and had his final retrieve on honkers during the warm up at the end of the season last year. Had to out him down in April. Still had the desire, just couldn't hold food or water due to several health issues. Couldn't put him thru that punishment any longer

Most of the time a pain in my butt, but also a great dog. And the other yellow is a dog named Dutch. Amazing lab.

Enjoy it! Read a lot on training books, watch videos, etc. It goes quick, so appreciate the time you have with your pup. It's fun to see them develop...Macy is already 6 1/2 and I can remember when she was dragging the bumper back to me like it was yesterday.

Looks like you've got a new one underway. Can't do it again. This will be my last.
