He looks smashing mate, are you training him to track deer? If so how is he getting on?
She's looking great!
Thanks folks, she's coming on slowly buy surely in her training. Tracks well on warm trails with hooves and a little blood, she's tenacious as well and absolutely loves to rag and eat her little bit of hide as a reward. She's been out stalking with me once when I've shot a beast and although it fell on the spot I sent her ahead and she had a great time licking the blood and trying to eat the whole animal...
Really she's just my little buddy, I have no need for her to perform outstandingly as a deer dog, although I hope that with training and more experience she'll just get better now that the ability is there.
