Training by the book
Does anyone have any advice or literature they’d recommend on raising a gundog indoors? I appreciate a kenneled dog is easier to train, but is there anything I could be doing (or not doing) in the house that might help me? My dog is not very focused on me at the moment, and I wondered if part of the problem is that he’s lavished with a bit too much attention!
Don’t be under the misconception that kenneled dogs are easier/ better to train than those kept indoors. When all is said and done it’s just where they sleep. The telling thing is what you do in training that counts.
Regardless of whether a dog lives indoors or outdoors the most important thing is to be consistent. Fellow trainer Lez Graham has recently written a series of books entitled: “The Pet Gundog”. Anyone who plans to keep their gundog indoors will find them an invaluable read.
