Well I am picking up a gsp puppy Sunday I just couldnt pass on the deal it is a 9 week old female solid liver color. I plan on training her to point quail,woodcock,and also duck retrieves they love the water. I currently have a jack russell I use for rabbits and squirrels. Then I have my lab I use for ducks. My wife uses a beagle for rabbits, he will put it on them.
I have had 3 GSP's in the past. Love the dog, but one trait that they have that I didn't like was that they love to roll in other dogs crap. I don't know what makes them do that, but all 3 did. Man did they love the water.
She is really doing good, me and my wife would take turns hiding a quail and then let her find them she found them ok but she didnt point she just jumped on them and grabed them she does have a soft mouth which is good she did not even pull a feather. The pointing will come with age.
