What if you bought a puppy that was promoted as a natural instinctive pointer. What would you expect of the dog to make a hunting dog out of it and what time frame would you concider reasonable to get there?
Don, ya know me, new as a pup's frist point, on all this "bird dog" stuff...but I would think a dpg that was promoted ""natural instinctive pointer"" would show interest and pause at anything with abird scent, well most anything. I would think it would take little training from handler to sharpen up point and such.
As far as time frame.... again not ever haveing trained a dog, Ild say maybe a good 12-18 months to get 'em to prime hunting form.
First make sure your gun is safe, remove the bolt and clean your barrel from the chamber to the end of muzzle. Clean the barrel using butchers bore shine until a patch comes out white. Run a total of 5 separate patches soaked with denatured alcohol through the bore and let dry for 30 minutes. Insert a cleaning rod with a jag and a dry patch into the neck of the chamber. Make sure it will stay there through the next process. Now using another cleaning rod, install a patch that has been coated...
