My wife recently brought home a black lab/hound mix from the humane society. He is about 6 or 7 months old and just started bird hunting, just went for the first time last weekend. We hunted grouse and woodcock and I was wondering if he would be a good bird dog or not. I'd like to try phesant some time but have no idea what I would be doing. Also any tips on how to train him would be very appreciated.
