My folks have just picked up a 10 week old English Springer Spaniel, From good working stock. He will eventually work with me and my Lab on our shoot. I am fairly new to deer stalking and wondering wether the breed make decent deer dogs ?? I know they have a good nose on them hence why theyre used by customs, but would they be any good for tracking deer ?
If so at what sort of age would you start his training and how ?
