Traing a terrier gun dog

Recommended Posts

Hillscreek

I know some of you don't like the sport of hunting with or without dogs. However I think this shows very well the nature of terriers and their attitude towards training. So different from the average retriever, pointer or setter. To me it seems the writer has a real understanding of a terrier's nature and how to relate to the independent minded breed of which we cairn owners have one of the feistiest I'm sure.

A small sampling …

There can’t be many terrier owners who have not at some time seen the little varmint steam past the objective intended by the handler to immerse itself in some kind of trouble that you hadn’t realised was available. There are aspects of terrierness that are hardwired into them and cannot be trained out. Those of us used to more co-operative breeds may go through a period of denial, but we are the ones who have to adapt. Once we have cast aside all the usual expectations, we can — up to a point — train our terriers. Petulant as a Z-list celebrity when thwarted, they sparkle when we cut them some slack. In stopping us from taking ourselves too seriously, the terrier is matchless.
