Has the dog ever been in cold water are in water for that matter. I wouldn't if it was me not worth killing a dog .
+1Thank you for the advice. I wasn't planning on letting her in the water, just sitting in the blind and maybe getting her feet wet. She's my first hunting dog so it's all new to me.
Awesome, I am glad she did well. I have no idea how close she was, but keep in mind that a duck load right next to you is a big jump from a trap load at 20 feet.^ thank you for the advice, I took her to the Turkey shoot before thanksgiving and she had no problem with gun shots. But sitting still would be a problem for her, she has tons of energy and the hardest pup I've ever trained. We are in nsl.
