have been reading online about training pups to hunt rabbits usind a domesticated rabbit from the pet store. Has anyone done this? I am getting a Brittany Spaniel late summer or early fall.
You mentioned squirrels reminds me of a time in Wisconsin grouse hunting. My dog had had so many productive points We were about to limit out. My hunting buddies had tried to buy my dog when he ran to a tree and treed a squirrel. I had to leash him and drag him away. No more offers!This is old thread my dog is now 3 ... I take him everywhere now... We hunt squirrels, rabbits, and sheds. I seem to be able to find rabbits more than pheasants on public and land I hunt so that's what I went with.
