So today was my GSP's first day in the field actually hunting, shes a year old. She flushed alot of birds, kept with-in range, didn't flinch around gun-shots (which she was hit or miss during training), and even pointed a few times.
My issues with her was she didn't hold her point (which is why she flushed birds) and my big issue was retrieving. I downed a pheasant and my pup went right to it. I gave the fetch command, but my pup just ran to it, then stared at the bird. However, the bird was still flinching and my pup wouldn't touch it. I know this are issues I can work on and by the end of the season I think she'll be okay.
