With these pups starting at younger age, it has become real easy to burn one out before they are 2 yrs. old. Seems like the better they are doing, the harder everyone wants to put them in woods & especially hunts. It depends on maturity of each pup to determine if it can take hunting 5-7 nights a week or if 3 or 4 would be a lot better & easier on pup.
Heck, some of these dogs (pups) have more time in the woods, even hunts, by the time they end their SS carrier than dogs used to ever hunt their whole lives 20-50 yrs. ago. Have seen several in my area that looked GREAT @ 2, but seem to have back slid in last 2 years & not looked near as good on casts anymore. If you got a good one coming on, give it time in the woods, but don't over do it, they need a little time to grow up & mature, too. JMO. Take care, Ron.
