    Played fetch with Jax some and worked on his fence scaling abilities. The pipe top allows him to cheat and put his feet on the pipe. Going to have to find some without top rail as he can sail over 4' fence when asked to.

    She’s a fantastic hunting dog, but is also content being in the house hanging out with my 3 year old. Also she loves riding in the back seat of the truck when I’m working, So that’s the best of both worlds for me!

    How about a short stretch of PVC "fence" to train with? You could make it adjustable height (or possibly stackable sections?) and gradually raise it higher to push his skill level.

    Just a thought. :drunk2:

    He is smart enough if an end is near, he will go around it. Otherwise that might work.

    There's no way anyone can say that this dog isn't smiling.

    He love to retrieve. And I mean anything. All I’ve got to say is “fetch it up” in the house and he’ll look around and find something that doesn’t belong and he’ll bring it to me. Could be a house shoe, a pillow, or anything. If you let him go too hard he’ll barf in the pool so I’ve got to watch the kids when they’re playing with him.

    While I do wish that I got to meet the girlfriends weenie dog 10 years ago back when I could have taken her hunting for prairie dogs and rabbits, I am pretty sure the only hunting dog in the picture is the girlfriends new Golden Retriever. She’s wanting to train him to be a therapy dog to help with her practice. I just might train him to sniff/retrieve squirrels or find sheds so he can have something a little less work like on his off time.
