Re: Newest Member of the Crossfire Family!

I need to post new pictures. Her name is Nellie. She went to the vet today for more shots, and, at 3.5 months, she weighed in at 31 pounds!

She is fetching everything already, and we are trying to break her from chewing on the dummies, since we don't need pre-chewed birds. But, maybe she is still too much puppy for that. We will take her out on opening day of dove season, but not expecting much from her this early.

Question on shots - vet is recommending snake vaccine. He says it is effective for both rattlesnake and copperhead. Anyone had any experience with this?

7 weeks old and home today! I asked Marty to bring home a puppy crate from Cabela's.

I'm thinking he might have been a little ambitious.

Labs are great. Did she come from a line of hunting dogs?
Yes, she does. Both parents are hunters. The owner of the dad says they never trained him to retrieve. Just took him out to the field, and he fetched birds. Not sure I completely believe that, but we can be hopeful!

We plan to start basic obedience training as soon as we get her, and take her to the range with us as often as possible to get her used to the sound.

I have raised plenty of German Shepherd dogs, so I know obedience training, but we have not had a retriever before. We will keep y'all updated on the progress.

Newest Member of the Crossfire Family!

4 week old, female black lab. This is gonna be our newest hunting buddy. (We hope) She will be coming home to us about the end of June.

She needs a name. And any tips or tricks you guys have for training a bird dog - well, just pass 'em on, please.
