    Diplomatic hmmmm

    30 degree heat and I'm knocking my snickers bar out getting stuff ready for the birds bosses son was repairing a main water pipe as he knew exactly where the leak was but decided to take his unruly cocker with him 12mths old .well as I was going back to the pen his cocker is running the beans after a duck and ducklings splitting them up all over the place I'm afraid I gave him a short burst of keepers tongue why do folk always say "well I've gotta train him " yes but not on my wild birds and not in 30 degrees arhhhh.
    yours one grumpy keeper !

    That's not training a cocker to be a good dog, but training it to be a bad dog. The last thing a young cocker needs is letting loose on any game, its been conditioned to run in and disobey commands. Not good As for the heat, was he trying to kill the dog with heat exhaustion? T wat springs to mind
    You were spot on ripping into him, I would've done the same thing!

    what you need to do is get hold of the cocker , and put it on a lead and tie to a tree .

    then get a good length of willow and collar the owner drag behind said tree and thrash the living daylights out of him and then tell the dog this will is what happens if you dont behave !

    Take the dog off him for a week or two might be easier than the stress of watching him run ragged.

    +1 tell him its a head strong dog and you can solve the problem ,might just end up a good flusher better than a running in mutt and ruin your had work come the first day!!

    I used to help on an estate where the Bosses wifes Lab used to go hunting solo, it was killing pheasants all over the Estate. When the Keeper spoke to the Bosses wife, she said "so what, they are our birds"!!!! What can you do then? Nothing at all, apart from bite your tongue and try and produce the birds for the Boss.
