Gun dog training is a passion we have here at Best Gun Dogs. Here is a 6 month old German Wirehair Pointer that we are introducing to birds. Starting dogs young and getting them introduced to birds is a vital step to getting your bird dog to utilize his natural abilities. Bird Introduction is one of the 7 areas we focus on in our training program. We like to take our time to introduce young dogs to birds. Make sure it’s an enjoyable experience, keep things fun, let pup get a good nose full of scent, move the bird to get his attention, and toss the bird to let him watch it fly away. By letting the puppy smell and see the bird, being careful not to let the bird hit the dog with a wing. You will get his senses firing and his natural bred hunting skills will take over. Bird introduction is a huge part of training don’t miss this critical time as a puppy to get the dog more than interested in birds get him excited about birds.
