So I'm taking the plunge and getting a BMH. I think I'm going to get a bitch, but are there any distinct differences in character in the bitch and the dog I should maybe be concerned about? (apart from the obvious!!) wild excited either way. Watched my friends doing a hunt one lucky day and...

I have a 9 week labrador puppy who is doing great. Already sitting on command, coming when called etc - learning very quickly off the other dog.

I have an 11 month old Fox Red Lab. I am looking for it to get trained (for next season) as unfortunately I do not have the time to do it. Does anyone know of a good/well thought after gun dog trainer in the Essex area or maybe slightly further out?
Thanks in advance, Joe.
