Sounds like you have done a good job thinking about everything.

I was just asking about your time availability because it's important to be able to training regularly to keep the dog in shape and sharp. I know with mine I only get out a few times a week, but early on it was every day. All a lot of dogs need is about 15 minutes a day as long as it is consistent. Longer sessions a few times a week help. Just be careful if you get involved it hunt tests. They are addictive and $$$. Field trials are even worse I hear.

I would have to second, or third, Jared Rocha. I've worked with him a few times and he is a good guy with a lot of knowledge.

Hey Mark,

I can work with the dog more than 30 a day. I would start out with 5-10 per day for a couple of weeks and slowly progress to 10-15. The rest of the time will be general exercise and socializing. Other than that she will be kennel/crate trained until she is free from accidents. I sent Jared an email already and will be setting up a time to go out and meet him.

Thanks!

So I get to finally go and make my pick next weekend and then will be taking my little lady home a week after that. So stoked!

Wish me luck on picking the very best :)

I am working with Jared Rocha now, I'm doing the one on one with him and may send my dog out in Oct, he is very helpful and will teach not only the dog but you also on what and how to train your dog. I did the one on one classes because I really wanted to say I trained my dog and seeing your pup put everything together and acually do what u have been working on is very rewarding. Good lucky!

Here she is! My little Tessa.

She was definitely the best girl in the litter for drive, interest in what I was doing vs. being distracted by blades of grass, wasn't whining like the rest of the dogs, but when she saw the wing I had in front of her on a string she would go WILD and not let go of it. She would also track it with her nose(not far by any means but within a foot). Very pleased with her demeanor and she is one cute lil' girl.

Beautiful pup my friend. Enjoy them because when they are at the trainers you miss them like crazy. Especially today being national dog day. Happy you got her
