Depends, I just buried one. First 3 years of her life we sometime hunted in the same zip code, latter she was a bird finding machine. No did not intentionally shorten in heavy cover, response to collar got her hunting with be. Great dog, great personalty. I would love another one. Her dad and granddad won the Grand National, so she was bred to run. Not bred to be a walking birdhunters dog.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.
