new lab, training

Recommended Posts

jegerjack

Well, I am getting my 2nd lab later this week. My 1st one is pretty good at pheasant hunting but he still has a hell of a time getting the duck hunting down.... Any one know a good school in the metro, I can go to, to help out the process. My 1st dog, I tried on my own and it has been a real pain keeping up on the training schedule I set for my self...

Four Winds up 94 just past St. Michael (about 1/2 hr from Maple Grove)has 2 of my pups right now and I'm pleased. They've been up there 3 months now. I took them up when they were about 5 1/2 mo. old. and
they cast, retrieve to hand, are steady at heal (mostly steady, they still get REAL excited when they hear the gun or see the bird). Tim and Craig would ideally like to get the dogs right after they drop their baby teeth and they WANT you to come up and work with your dog as often as possible. The pups went to their first field trial a week and a 1/2 ago. We had a blast and I was pretty pleased to see them retrieving marks out past 100 yards. They obviously aren't ready for blinds yet, but they're retrieving machines on land and in the water.

I second that Four Winds Kennels suggestion. Tim and Craig do a great job. They have a lot of good land for training, ponds and a lake to use, and nice kennels for the dogs to stay in.

They don't have a web site. Neither Tim or Craig are real "techies" and although they do have a computer in their office, I've never seen them use it! They are good about returning calls and have no problem with you coming out to see them work with any of the dogs they are training. I pick my 2 up next weekend.

I would recommend Fischer's Kennels in Avon, MN. You can check them out on the web at

I highly recommend buying the books Game Dog and Water Dog by Richard A. Wolters. Those books alone and common sense is all I used and I am happy with the results.

I would highly recommend Silver Creek Kennels. It is about 6 miles west of Monticello. The nicest and cleanest kennel you will find anywhere in MN. Give Travis a call he will be moer than happy to talk with you and go over what you want out of your dog.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
