I have a birittany that is 7 months old. Have gotten him into about 50 pigeons and 12 pen raised quail. Have taken him on two wild bird hunts in Oklahoma as well and killed a few birds for him. I am hoping to get him into some more wild birds as well but was wondering if anybody has any recommendations on trainers in OK or TX who can get the dog some more exposure and start building a foundation for steadyness?

Tim Hidalgo in Hardesty, OK is a great trainer. He also judges field trials and handles alot of trained dogs in field trials. He has done a great job for me and several of my friends. Good luck. Sounds like your pup is on the right track.

Rob is also a friend. He trains most of the NSTRA dogs in Texas. I'd wait until August to send the pup to any trainer, where it will be ready for next season.

Thanks for the input guys. Everybody having a good season so far? Birds arenít as thick as they were last year in SW Oklahoma. Also probably at disadvantage when I hunt alone with a 7 month old pup.

Had no idea there was one in Hardesty. So he does upland dogs I assume? I may have to check that out.

I tried to get my Brittany in with Ronnie Smith (ought to be the best) but they blew me off.

It doesnít take a genius to train a bird dog. You can do it yourself. It just takes a little time and dedication. You can save yourself a lot of change, and youíll get a lot more satisfaction out of it. Put a whoa on that pup and heíll steady up.

I've done several. Most people want to skip the boring part. Delmar Smith said take the pup off of birds and don't put it back until it is completely broke. His wording was a little off but he nailed it.

Tim is a stand-up guy. He has access to a lot of land with WILD birds. A lot of folks send their field trial dogs to him. I've hunted behind several dogs he has trained and we bought a dog from him.
