Live Bird Retrieve

3 posts in this topic

It's kinda weird....my dog retrieves anything, except live birds. In the past couple days I dropped a couple roosters that didn't die. The dog grabbed the bird and put her mouth on it but just stayed like that. It was sort of like she pinned the bird down and didn't know what to do. She doesn't bite the bird hard enough to puncture it but just mouths it. I'm not worried. She is just a puppy and is probably a little weirded out by this. Thought it was kinda strange though. We didn't loose the birds, I just have to walk over and grab it and ring its neck. Hope she grows out of this.

Tim will Luci retrieve a dead bird? If so I dont think you have anything to worry about. She will get used to live, moving birds with age.

Tim if I remember right your Lucy is about a year old, and has not had any profetional training.

It really isn't uncommon even for experianced dogs to not retreive a squrming, fiesty bird.

I think it is as BDR said ,it will just take some time for her to mature and get used to the live bird.

She might have been spured and is shy of the bird now, seen this happen to a Brittny once.It took a couple of outings to get the Britt back on retrieving after that.

Lot's of bird action will get her going, just keep at it.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
