What will you be carrying come opening day? For me, it'll once again -- for perhaps the 27th consecutive year -- be my Fox Sterlingworth 16-gauge. Look for a neat little reflection on it, and a future Fox, in the September/October editorial.--Jason Smith, Editor

From the Editor: Obviously, depending on when you receive your next issue, our world looks a little differently compared to when we toasted the New Year and welcomed in 2020. Whether that look is dramatically different or not remains to be seen, and seems to change with each day’s news releases, stock market fluctuation, and social media theory.

We could fill up these pages, of course, with articles and advice on what you need to be doing with your dogs right now in light of our new, shared realities; but I think that applying some of the general recommendations and, in some cases, executive orders to your immediate family – dogs included – is common sense.

Therefore, I’d like to use our pages to continue to remind you of OUR world – the world of pointing dogs, retrievers, family, the outdoors, hunting, tradition. It’s a world untainted – at least in our minds – by the trappings of the “real world”; and if, for right now, we can only read about it and dream, then I feel that’s our duty here at the magazine. To give you that opportunity.

So our plan – in contrast to just about everything else out there at the moment – is not to change much from what we’ve shared and celebrated in these pages for years and years, that is, the happiness and optimism that our dogs bring to us. Perhaps that bit of consistency and normalcy is just what we need right now.

Sincerely,
Jason Smith
Editor

POINTING DOG POINTERS: The Late Bloomer - Pointing Dog

Not all pups are naturally talented hunters. Find out what to do if yours shows signs of being a late bloomer.

Late bloomers are generally just slow maturing dogs. But some dogs that seem like late bloomers are inhibited in their development due to other reasons.

The Art of Planting Birds - Pointing Dog

Planting birds is an art that fosters young pups’ development and readies them for the hunting season.

by Bob & Jody Iler Our clients love their bird dog classes! Not only do they learn to train their pointing dogs with the help of “seasoned” trainers, but sessions are hands-on from the start. Each class, of course, is preceded by relevant theory for that day’s lesson, but nothing works better ...
