New pup? and help.

4 posts in this topic

We have a new 10 week old female Brittany (which we have had for 3 weeks)and we also have a 2 1/2 yr female gsp, these two are in separate side by side outdoor kennels during the day and we bring them in the house after supper for the evening. The problem here is the new pup is very aggressive as she bites, growls and barks at the gsp all evening till we separate them for bed time. Not sure if this adds to the problem but when these 2 are out in the yard together the gsp runs circles around the pup and she gets to chasing and barking in frustration. Our gsp is young and prbly enjoys the playing but it sure seems to me like the pup is getting out of control? thanks

Hard to tell without seeing the dogs if the pup is playing, or actually aggressive. I would watch it close because a 10 week old pup shouldn't overly aggressive towards other dogs.

If you watch a litter of pups when they are all together you can usually pick out one or two that are more dominate and aggressive than the rest of the litter. Maybe your pup was the dominate in the litter. Your older dog will let the pup know when its had enough.

I have a 10 month old Britt and he is quite the talker. He is always barking or making whatever noises he can when he plays. Even when he plays with me or my 5 year old. I was worried at first, then realized he was just having fun, and not being aggressive. Hopefullly that is the case with your pup. Hope all goes well. Enjoy the pup grin.gif

I have a 3 1/2 year old and a 2 year old britt. Ever since

they met, they have ran played aggressively together. They

run full speed around the yard, biting and rolling around on

the ground. Not mean spirited, just friendly nipping to get

the other one going. Both are good with other dogs and the neighborhood children. Keeps them in good hunting condition

too with all the running around also. They are in the kennel all day long side by side and go nuts when I let them out when I come home. They seem to enjoy each other.

I wouldn't worry about it.

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
