Steady

We are starting to see some great progress in Abby's training. Steadying a spaniel is not as easy as finished dogs make it look. It takes time and patience to complete this process. Here's a video of a training run we made the other day. You'll see Abby's progress within the run itself.

Looks like Abbey has learned a lot and is doing a great job. She is really paying attention to you and that's so important with a bird dog.

Great stuff Matt. Your work is paying off. I hunted Springers for almost 20 years on grouse in my Allegheny Mts. Seeing yours work brought back the memories.

I hunted Springers for almost 20 years in my Allegheny Mts. Seeing yours work brought back alot of memories of happy dogs eager to please. Give Abbey an ear scratch for me.
