So I had the opportunity to get some good slough puddle duck hunting in this year. Loved it. Even found some decent spots up here in AB to set up along some of the windy rivers. With my newfound interest I took the big jump lol. I had been debating after this season if maybe I would need a new partner...she has arrived. We now have a new addition to our family, her name is Willow. She is a purebread Chesapeake Bay retriever. Her parents are devoted waterfowl and beaver retrievers. We are all super excited to see her grow and learn the trade lol. Lots of reading to do, and any input from veteran hunters who have four legged partners is welcomed:)

Congratulations on the new pup

Only ever had one retriever and he right or wrong did most learning on his own as long as I took him with me and got familiar with the gun and water and retrieving the dummy bird. 

He would fail every trial I am sure but would go get a goose for me which is all I wanted

My britts now that were trained to hunt were a different story and need a lot of work

As gary says I am sure there is s group up there you can join to help

All the best with the new dog

Thank you, that is the plan. We work with her every day but she will be getting some serious training from specific clubs.

Congratulations on your new pup. Chessies are great dogs and love to hunt. I've had a couple myself and hunted with a few more. They take a little longer to train so dont try to rush it. They usually take about 3 years to get to know their job well. Used mine on upland and waterfowl. Good luck with the training.

Thanks, she is coming along well. Loves to retrieve and be outside. She is young and eager to please:)
