Duck Hunting

Another time we met that our dogs would live their lives.
I don’t hunt and I will not. It doesn’t match with my viewpoint.

As I breed this amazing breed more than 10 years, I see how work is changing their mentality. So I do everything to keep this unique breed as it is bred primary – extremely intelligent with very stable temperament, strong body and good health. All dogs in our kennel who are used in breeding are working + show dogs.

That’s why my dogs work and are developed from puppy age to recognise different smells and use their nose and skills.

This time Invi (Callidus Invictum UPE) and Hugo (Exito Bueno UPE) with Audrius Sapoka and his friends.

Before you bring your new puppy home, you need to prepare your home and family for its arrival.

How to Introduce Your Dog to Gunfire Sound (and Other Loud Sounds)

VJP_sm-9332

Training dogs of any command or socialising them in the city with sounds, smells, people and all the chaos is not the same as getting your pup accustomed to the gunfire sound.

The sound of shooting is an active artificial intervention in the environment, so you have to do it step-by-step avoiding mistakes. Even the boldest pup in the litter might become gunfire shy if the introduction to the gunfire is not handled correctly. A shy dog is not what you want, especially if we speak about gun dogs.
