Last night I put down a deposit with Broken Bow Kennels in Idaho Falls for a Griffon pup. They normally have a long waiting list, but just had someone back out and I was able to get a male from him. Pup should be ready Dec 15th, with plenty of time to get ready for the fall hunting season. Since moving to Whitefish, I have been spending 2-3 days a week hunting waterfowl over water with some really good results. So far I have ordered the following books. Lots of reading in my future! How to help gun dogs train themselves. Joan Bailey Gun Dog. Wolters The training and care of versatile hunting dog. Winterhelt Training the versatile hunting dog. Chuck Johnson Dont shoot the dog. Karen Pryor The art of raising a puppy. Monks of new skete How to be your dogs best friend. Monks of new skete. I also picked up a Garmin Alpha 100 TT GPS unit for the pup.
