Doc’s training photos 8-5-17

setters, spaniels, and Spinoni

Working with Doc on a check cord. His only weakness is breaking on birds that flush wild and surprise him.

    Such beautiful dogs! The setter reminds me of my sister’s dog, except hers is a red and white, which was the original breed standard. Doc looks so proud retrieving that pigeon. Is the Brittney/Springer as hyperactive as I would think, or am I making a false assumption about spaniels? Thanks for sharing your sweet babies with us.

  2. Thanks. The Brittanys and Brittany cross are high energy for sure. When we flushed one of the pigeons, the Brittany we were working with nearly snagged it out of the air.
