Blue Moon Kennels – Training Pups

Had a great squirrel sight drag and chase with the pups last night.

Brandi, Bree, and Bianka liked that game very much in fact so much that they were gassed and ready for a breather by the time the others figured out something with a new smell was sailing past them in the grass.  Once the rest got into it I was gassed!

My daughter side tracked them long enough for me to give them a short scent drag (8 feet) in the tall weeds.  I called them back and watched their reaction when they cut the drag trail, and what a riot it was.  They were going over and under one another trying to figure which way it went once they got going in the right direction Brandi had taken the lead located the squirrel grabbed it and took off!  I was able to slow her with a line to the squirrel so all pups were able to get bit of reward.

They are a kick!

The quail and rabbit will be pulled from the freezer and we will start working with those next.

For anyone interested we do have 2 males and 2 females still available.

    I am very interested in your male pups, if you have any left. How old are they now? I’m needing a reliable mountain dog as I am an avid backpacker. Fowl hunting and retrieving is a plus of course. I’ve grown up with working labs and my father used to breed Springer Spaniels, however I am unfamiliar with the Wachtelhund. Some guidance and more information would be greatly appreciated. (208) 420-9865
