I thought you all would appreciate these pictures of the start American Style field training for young pups at Deep Run Farm. They see pigeons at 5 weeks of age and are individually worked with birds and dummies until they leave at 8 weeks:
This guy looks like he's getting his first wiff of a live bird.
What a pose! This one thinks he can be a show dog too...
It's wonderful to see when instinct first kicks in...
This is a picture of Jack Jagoda with the pups. Jack is co-owner of Deep Run Farm and co-founder and current president of the NAHRA.
Those pups are getting "decoy proofed" early!

Not mine but the breeder I got my last 2 from. But it is awful tempting to get one more after seeing these pics...Originally Posted by Tundra Aries

The last picture makes me want to grab one & take it home!!
