New pointing dog training series is here! Máquina our pointing machine has been a long anticipated addition to our pack. If you have followed along with us, you know that we have traditionally trained retrieving breeds. Now, it is time to get into the pointing dog training world, and I'm excited to share the journey of training my first pointer. Will there be differences? Absolutely. Will there be similarities? Most definitely. At the end of the day a dog's a dog, and with any dog, the foundation comes first.
This series will be different from any other we've done for a variety of reasons. What won't be different is that it will be real, raw and unedited. We share the good, bad and ugly knowing they they all are important in order to make progress with a pup. Will she point? Eventually yes, I'm sure of that. Until then, we are enjoying every minute of her "being a puppy" and by that I mean a puppy that makes good choices and is exposed to and held to the standard of behavior we expect. Discipline is not a negative word. Discipline earns freedom.
In this first episode, we are introducing Máquina to place training, which many told me I would not be able to do with an english setter. I'm confident we will prove that theory wrong in this pointing dog training series.
