Today’s Grouse Hunt!

Training and hunting on the flat tops in CO today. The guys were hunting in a snow storm with 16″ already on the ground. Alan and Scott got bonus points from Todd by giving this day their all. Alan flew up from GA and Scott drove over from Denver to work with Todd and the dogs. The ride up the mountain and back was pretty bad and very slow going. More snow to fall tonight!  What will tomorrow bring for the guys?

How was your day at the office?

At the end of the day we came across a herd of sheep that were moving their way down the mountain. Following them were at least 3 working dogs that we could see. As I moved closer to the sheep to take photos the working dogs moved closer to me. They stayed near the sheep but had a eye on me and Todd the whole time. This was really awesome! A great way to end the day…

Here are some videos of the three dogs working in the field on their birds. They have just started to find, flush and get birds shot over them. Sometimes the birds and dogs don’t always work the way you want them to while the video camera is rolling. Enjoy the video’s.

As you can see River is catching up on some much needed rest after getting home from CH camp. River was with us for about 4 months of obedience/field training. Daniel was pretty happy to see his dog and was very excited to see the progress that she has made at camp. Getting an early start in training is very important for your dog’s future. We will miss you River and hope to see you soon back at CH camp. Enjoy your summer vacation at the beach.
