Hey, I see its been awhile. Anyway, I would buy the dvd series from michigans own Shawn Stahl "Fowl Dogs". He is a former world champ goose caller and a superb dog handler/ trainer!! Plus he's from Michigan!!!
Second, You need to read "Water dog" and "Duck dog" by Mike Landry or something close to that. Takes you from 1st days with pup to hunt test!!!
Third, contact Hunters Creek in Metamora. Several top notch trainers can help you with some advice or a full boarding program!
I picked up an 8mos old lab last winter, who had zero training. Totally neglected!! Now, at a yr and a half, he will run blinds, multiple retvs, whistle trained and hand signals. He's not perfect but he's already better than most! Make training fun! Always be positive, don't drell on what dog did wrong! Train 3x more than you think is needed!!
STIMULUS PKG THAT WOULD WORK: PUT A $1000 DOLLAR REWARD ON THE 15 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN THIS COUNTRY, $2500 ON DRUG DEALERS, & $5000 ON TERROIST, $10000 ON POLITICANS !!!!!!
