He said things I've heard from others was a mistake. He thought puppies should flush birds.

Guess it depends on your method of training.

I have been saying that on this forum for a while now. Chasing birds builds the desire to hunt and find birds. Makes sense to me and it works

He got sent to bird dog ban camp. A lot depends on the pup.

He's lived in ban camp for a long time, but its not because of his training methods.

I don't believe Mr. Miller faked any papers. The problems came up when the sire DNA'd but the mother didn't. Ferrell can't be held responsible for what the owners of the female(s) did or didn't do. When the American Field asked him to cooperate he said he couldn't. They then dropped the hammer on him. I think bird dog folks owe Ferrell a bunch for the work he did building the Miller prefix.

I don't think most of us will ever 100% know if he intentionally faked any papers on EPs, or not.
But I agree with Chet.

Just for the record.......Do I think Ferrell knew what some owners were doing? You bet. Did he know that some might take the best pups out of three litters and register them as one litter, maybe, well probably. Did he falsely register pups? nope. The owner of the female registered the litter and Ferrell did what he was bound to do by filling out the owner of sire form which states when and who was bred. The female owner brings in a bit&h and Ferrell gives him the filled out form. What happens after that is murky. Again all the problems were on the female side of the breeding.
