Hello everyone.

I've been creeping the site for a while now, and since adding Bailey to our family about 6 weeks ago, I thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm from the North Dallas area, and this is my 13 week old GSP Bailey. She's been fantastic and has fit in with the family like she's always belonged.
She's been pointing since we got her, retrieves as far as I can throw, LOVES going through the woods, and lives to cuddle with the kids (son 10 and daughter 8).

I've hunted behind plenty of GSPs, but Bailey is our first to take home.

I'd absolutely welcome any advise along the way!!!

Bailey 7 Weeks

Bailey 8 Weeks

Bailey 12 Weeks

Start researching GSP trainers in your area, then visit their facilities and ask for references.

Nice looking pup! Make sure you exercise her daily, it will make her easier to live with.

Your first mistake is letting her sit in your lap. My GSP is 7 and weighs in at 69# but still thinks he's a lap dog crazy

There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

2 take your time and do not rush her
