Will keep this brief, but had a choice hunt on Sunday with the new dog I have been training up and just started Hunting over this year.
Definitely you can teach an old dog new tricks! Zach was 8 when I first got hold of him, and is a pleasure to train and work with. There really is something quite cool Hunting over a steady, calm yet driven dog that works with a bit of class and finess.
Will only get a few years out of this dude but will make the most of it before Ceek takes over. Really cool Hunting overa heading dog. Highly recommended it.
