I want to train my Cur to help me hunt chukar and quail and such. What is the best way to go about this?

Cur?

Do yourself a huge favor and buy yourself the book Gun Dog, by Richard Walters. It has everything you need. If you can't read, or don't like to, I think there is also a DVD version. Do a search on google.

I cant wait till i get a place and can get a couple hunting dogs. It kills me to lose birds, and it unfortunately happens too much.

Yeah, I just got this BMC, he is a good dog and should be a great hunting dog. I am considering getting a chocolate lab as well. Do you think they would work good together or should I get dogs of the same breed?

Do yourself a favor and get this book/DVD. The DVD's are an updated version of the book, and are a nice supplement to the info that the book presents. "Game Dog" is also very well done, as is "Water Dog."

The dogs should get along fine as long as one is brought in as a pup- preferable the lab. Curs are good dogs, but can be one owner type dogs. If you introduce an amiable, eager to please breed like a lab, the cur will have no huge dominance issues over a happy pup- it'll settle itself very quickly.

I've had chocolates all my life and find them to be wonderful dogs for pets and for hunting.
