Patiently waiting for mom & dad to get off work so we can go up north and get ready for our first duck hunt! It's duck opener this weekend in Minnesota, any other retrievers going out!? 🦆🐕💨 #duckopener#duckhunting
Here's a little snippet of Gus and Dad practicing patience with retrieve. You can see the trainer in the distance, while Dad is instructing Gus to sit and stay until he hears the gun. Once the gun goes off he knows it's time hunt!
Our handsome little lad got his first hair cut! We almost didn't recognize him with out all his shaggy hair! Today marks his fourth week at training, which means he is half way done! We miss him so much and can't wait to use his new skills at home!
Since our last visit Gus has nearly perfected his obedience. It's a remarkable feeling to say a command and having a pup listen immediately! During our visit today the trainer introduced Gus to the sound of gun shots for the first time. He didn't even flinch and kept his eye on the dummy. This was a crucial test to see if Gus was going to be able to hunt or not. We already can't wait for our next weeks visit! . . . #huntingdog#gundog#training
This weeks curriculum for Gus is perfecting his obedience training! So far he has learned to heal, sit stay, and come on command. It's incredible to see the progress he's made already. We can't wait to see his improvement next week!
