Most important thing we teach is self control.
Dogs, horses, kids... ourselves.
The foundation is self control.

I feel like I had a good lab. He's been gone for a while and while he wasn't perfect, he loved to hunt. His drive to hunt made me want to go more. He broke on the shot some when he was young and I never got him trained on hand signals, but he was determined and he was everyone's best friend. He was my pet and my hunting partner. In my eyes he was not only a good dog, but the best dog I could have ever asked for even if he had a rebellious streak in him. He would be off screwing around while setting decoys but you better believe at first light he was in the blind watching for birds. If he heard a safety click off he would immediately look at your gun barrel, see where it was pointed, and look that direction. After first light, later in the morning he would go do his own thing for a little while sometimes. I was there to have fun and he was too. He was a good dog.

The only time I do not take him with me is when I go to work away in SC and when I run the brush hog. He is even with me felling trees and I make him wait to the side a bit when it gets close to dropping one.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

Most all dogs are good except for the bad ones.

A good dog is only as good as its master. A dog needs a master, not a human!

Never brag about a dog unless they are dead or 1000 miles away.

I think a "good" dog is one that's good at what he's supposed to be. Working dogs have a job they're supposed to do, which is where their quality is measured. Pet dogs are expected to be well-behaved around people. Nowadays most people want want their working dogs to be good pets as well, but that wasn't always the case. It wasn't so long ago that many hunting and livestock dogs were kept away from people to prevent them becoming "pets." It didn't matter if they were good with people as long as they were good at their job. Today there's much more demand for "all-around" dogs.

I'm happy with my dog because he's good where it matters to me.

A good dog is one you can sit and watch the sunrise with and discuss all the worlds problems and listen to his solutions.

A good dog is one that you wouldnít sell for any amount of money after Saturdayís hunt, and swear youíd give him to the first Asian person you saw after Sundayís hunt.

A good dog is one that will protect whatís yours when you arenít there.

A good dog is one that gets his own place in the house after retirement. One you even install new door knobs for so he can let himself in and out.

Iíve had one truly good dog in my lifetime and I donít think Iíll ever have another. He was my ďonce in a lifetimeĒ and I was dang honored to be his master. My vet even cried when we had to put him down.

I would brag on a very few of mine. Two of the very best were free.

A Good dog is one that has passed "The Red Herring Test "
sure glad that only to apply to one breed.

Took my brother 8 years for his Brittany to train his master...seems my brother could not hear a tinkle of a bell when the dog was on point...then the flush....and they always land in a tree...and the dog barks....saying get the you know what over here.....and he would call the dog over and leave the grouse. For 9 years I got a hundred grouse a year over that dog.
