Yes I know exactly what I'm in for. While I've never had my own puppy I've helped raise and train quite a few for friends and family. I've also assisted my aunt and cousins who breed Bovier Des Flanders and Portuguese water dogs. I'm not new to puppy's just new to owning one of my own. One of my past dogs an Australian cattle dog mix who I got at 11 months old ended up being a fly ball and agility champion so I know what it takes to train a dog to a high level. What I dont know is how to train it to hunt birds so I'm going to be taking the dog to a local hunting preserve where they train dogs to hunt birds and the owners how to train them.
