Ruger's First Weekend home in July. The following photos were one month ago and last week, respectively.

I just started formal "Here" and "Kennel" commands last week. He is coming along great. Been on two quail and will be introducing to two more this weekend.

His pointing ability is starting to come out on a wing. Retrieving started also but he is inconsistent but that will come along soon enough.

I train him at night in the yard two to three times per week for about 30 minutes.

Trying to get him ready to run in the fields for this winter. I will be taking him to North Dakota this winter but will not be hunting in the group. Myself and another GSP owner will be running our pups separate so they don't interfere. We don't want to be "that guy and his dog"...again.

GSP how are you training here and kennel? I've been working on here. Cy is not consistent yet but he knows it... it's just that dang nose that leads him astray!

This is Pearl, sister to Cy. She is learning to retrieve waterfowl and has now done her first water retrieve!

I follow George Hickox's videos. Clicker training to teach the command, followed by verbal cues. I am on verbal cues now. I have my wife helping a couple times a week with "here" command. I have several 24x24x10 and 24x24x4 wooden boxes for Whoa command (started last night) Wont use E-collar training for several more months.

Some great photos all.
 
Bman... The photo of Balie at 5 weeks is simply awesome! Those are the first weim pups I've seen... Gorgeous! Ok... that's not a word I could ever use on the waterfowl side.
