I have a black lab, he's about 11 weeks old and I was wondering if it was too early to show him a live bird? I've been letting him play around with a dead dove and he'll retrieve it for me so I wanted to try taking it to the next step and I heard live birds should come after dead birds. If so what can I use for a live bird?
I just introduced my 7wk old litter to a live pigeon last week.... definitely not too early
Not too early, just make sure it doesn't get hurt or scared........don't throw it in with a full grown and nasty ringneck or goose or something like that.
We tie pigeons to a string and let the pups chase them
