I know its kind of off the subject, but it kind of has to do with hunting and figured someone around this joint has to know somethin about it. first, if any dog to retrieve birds what would you get. consider kid friendly and not over the top expensive. second, what kind of things can i do to train it, what to use, and what age can i start. Thanks and again i know its sort of off the subject of the forum so if you think its needed you can lock it.
