A trainer once told me at that age the only sure sigh was to kick the metal food bowl and which ever dog goes hide dont get that one.
I have had bum dogs from nonhunting puppy mills.
I get puppies from hunters who breed good hunting dogs just to get a puppy for themsesves or friends. I tried to breed mine last week but she will not let my male on her. Funny thing is she will let any other male try.
