We have two GSP girls 4 and 9 months old. The 9 month old has been on dove, quail and duck hunts with us. The quail hunt appeared to wear her down the most as she was constantly running during the hunt. She will run herself til she literally drops. To help her recover we massage her muscles. She enjoys it and helps her to recover.
Where did you do the quail hunt at? We went to Chaparral but that is a 4 hour drive for us. Considering a visit to Poetry to give her more train oppty.
Took my German Short Hair pup on his first hunt this weekend and he did great released birds 20 quail 5 pheasants. He held his point and did a good job retrieving which I havent worked on with him. He is still sore/tied after 2 days, does anyone do anything to help there dogs recovery after big hunt.
