Last week I brought home a Springer pup, an 8 week old dog. It is my intention to train him to work with me and deer only, no feather.
So far the basic obedience training is progressing very well, in the garden, just me, him and cooked deer liver.
My dilemma is that I have two other dogs who have received very little in the way of formal training, one of which is a jack russell who will chase anything given half the chance (I have tried to reign him in but have not yet suceeded). Can I take the springer out with him for walks (when he's had his jabs) or will he pick up bad habits? Or should I walk him seperately?
Any advice would be most grateful.
