Yep, very nice pup, coming on great.
They grow so fast and these lock downs are not helping .
Have work worked out how to get him used to centre fire shots ?
Does anyone here know how to train a pup to get used to rifle with brakes on them ?
Put ear muffs on them. 🤦🏼‍♂️😂 Their ears are better than ours so magnify the pain. Most guy's I know that hunt with dogs make their dogs sit behind them and have changed their brakes to full ported muzzle brake or have taken them off.
How do you put earmuffs on a dog?? :animals-dog: :handgestures-thumbup:

Everything that I have read says that brakes deafen dogs even quicker than they deafen humans.

I wouldn't even try to get a companion dog used to braked gunfire. Dog would need to be so far behind the gun that it would simply be impracticable.

Looks like the pup is coming along nicely. Being rural probably makes it a bit easier to train him, but still not as good as being able to go bush.

Yeah, its a pain. I had just started to condition our pup to gun shots the one weekend we were allowed out between lock down 5 & 6 this year. Our girl is 13 months old now, and all the training / days in the bush we had planned last year and this year have been completely buggerd up by lock downs. Its either been too hot to take her bush, or we have not been allowed out due to locked down. Just one more frustrating thing to deal with at the moment :violin: :violin: :violin:

Yeah being rural and NSW having outdoor recreation in your lga as an acceptable reason to be out means I’m not affected to much.

A couple of pieces of 2x4 slapped together can make a pretty loud clap and I often take these on walk also to give him more exposure.

My old English pointer, I would take him to the local clay target range and park up the back as a pup and slowly move forward over time to be right next to the shots. Because I was well known there I could walk behind the guys shooting skeet and over time the dog would start to watch the sky and the clays moving. In the end on practice day the dog would walk with me and sit next to me why I did a round of skeet. This type of thing would not be allowed now but sure did help with the dogs training. I also would played a tape at dinner time of recorded gun shots from the clay range. Not as good but everything helps with young dogs. :handgestures-thumbup:

I always took my dogs to shoot 5 stand, got them used to gunshots, kept me in practice at the sane time.
I'm soft and I don't care. :dance:
