It was a great afternoon for a great pheasant hunt w/the Pres. of our PF chapter. Pres. and Vice Pres. need to hunt together more often than we have! 9 birds. Mr. Bill Schallers English Cockers were very impressive and I got pictures with two of the pups from the new litter! A really good day overall. Eric
My daughter’s first bird. Flushed and retrieved by Augie. Jon (Augie is 9 months old)
Its Jess, just thought I would send a quick update on Milo who is nearly 6 months now. He is doing well and fitted right into our family and won everyone’s heart over. He follows me everywhere and loves to play fetch and retrieves very well. He also loves going for calf cart rides with the wind blowing his ears.
He is fully crate trained and likes to have alone time in his crate sometimes. He is very easy to train and picks up on new tricks within 1-2 days. The only one that took a while to master was potty training but he has got it now.
He has a high bird instinct and whenever he is let out of the house he sprints for the chickens and has successfully caught several, luckily not killing them. However, he has caught a wild bird in our garden when he was younger.
Thank you for bringing such a happy and loving dog into our family, he never ceases to bring a smile to our faces. Hope all is doing well with your new puppies and all your other English Cockers.
First So Dak limit! The big old bird had 32 bars on the tail feather and honest 3/4″ spurs! Glad you had a good hunt! Lee Ellie is 6 years old.
I thought I would drop you a quick note. I hope all is well. I wanted to let you know that Reggie is an amazing pup with such hunting drive and wonderful personality. Reggie and I go everywhere together and I just love spending time with him. We have been working on his training and going out and practicing bird hunting. You would be pleased to know today Reggie got his first grouse and did an amazing job. Last week he flushed a pheasant and we are just beginning. I am truly blessed to have such a great companion. Thank you so much for introducing us. I hope all is well with you and your family and wonderful English Cockers. Take care. Sincerely,
Corey and Reggie
I’ve attached a couple of pictures of Finn, now 3+ years old (3-30-14 birthdate, from Jade). He remains a cheerful, eager companion, fast and athletic but also, as Jon sometimes says “a big baby with fur” that crawls onto Jon’s lap for an evening snooze. We are often complimented on how handsome he is, and we can only agree.
Thank you for bringing this great dog to us, and warm regards.
Sorry it’s taken so long to give you an update on Oakley, but it’s been just crazy this spring
Oakley is a wonderful dog. What a great addition to the family. You know the old saying, “Dogs smile with their tails,” well, Oakley must be a very happy dog because he smiles with his whole body. When he wags his tail, he wags with his whole body. And, just the same as Max, he grins! It’s really amazing, when I come home, he runs up wagging his body, smiling.
He has boundless energy, of course, and he seems to have amazing prey drive. He’s getting pretty good at retrieving, but delivery to hand has been a bit of a challenge. He likes to play keep away, or he wants to play tug of war. He’s only what, 4 months old, so maybe he’s still a little young to expect a lot. Outside, he has his nose to the ground and explores every inch of the yard. He’s right on top of the rabbits, squirrels, and birds. Hard to get him to focus with distracting sights, sounds and scents.
The other day we were out early, well before sun-up. He immediately began his patrol of the yard then came up to a quick stop. I thought he was looking at me, but he was actually looking past me. When I turned around there was a large doe standing in the yard, literally 10 feet away. It was great fun to watch him challenge the doe. He got low to the ground and slowly moved toward the deer. When they were about 5 feet apart he stopped, tail in the air, and gave a low bark. The deer stood her ground and lowered her head, pointing her nose and ears at him. When she moved, Oakley retreated to the safety under my feet. The doe turned and slowly walked away. When she walked away, Oakley immediately went into pursuit. Good thing I had him on the long line.
He’s been to the vet twice now for check ups and shots. All is well, he’s very healthy and growing fast. Our Vet just loves him.
As I said, he’s a wonderful dog and a great addition to our family.
Any advice on early training, specifically as regards the delivery to hand?
Here’s a picture. The photo is a couple weeks old now, but what a ham!
