Re: millers dealing in
Sounds like he will make a good prospect based on his breeding for whatever game birds you might pursue. Walk him at 7 weeks and expose him gently to cover. When he is moving thru the woods with you at 4-5 months, try and walk him where the grouse and woodcock will be. Let him smell everything and hear the sounds of the woods and game and see the places birds live. If you do this and birds are around, you'll soon know if he will make you a dog. Be patient and keep him out there but not too long in any session. Keep it fun for the pup.
I'd like to hear next fall from you how he looks. I find it interesting that you queried the group AFTER you bought your pup. I probably would have told you the same things as I believe MOST pointer pups will make a bird dog and one of these types of blood lines will certainly be no exception. Some times there is a lemon or even a true superstar in a litter but most will make bird dogs if given the chance.
Good luck! Glad you have a new pup. Life is wonderful!
