In this episode, I talk in some detail about how we raised our Labrador litter in 2019 and our 'keeper' pup, Fyr.

And how eventually we made the difficult decision to rehome her at 6 months, to a home and a dog sport which su…

A juicy episode with loads of different bits and pieces! What does exercising a gundog look like if we stop 'walking the dog'? Is it okay to play tug with a gundog or does it encourage hard mouth? How can we stop a dog visiting the dummy thrower on the way back from a mark?By Jo Laurens
