Training in Serbia on wild partridge -preparing for the Field Trial season
Its sad, but true: in today’s European Union, you hardly find enough wild birds (pheasants of partridges) to be able to train a pack of 12 dogs for Field Trials. So we had to travel over 600 km to Serbia, to get our dogs ready for the trialing season. This is our vacation I guess. While others go skiing or to wellness hotels, we walk 8-9 hours on the fields with the dogs, looking for partridges. And believe it or not, we enjoy it. Because the dogs love it, so we are happy.
The terrain is usually very challenging for the dogs, they need to work hard and with big concentration, as partridges are tricky. We were very pleased with the performance of our dogs. Some videos you find here, the rest you can see on our Youtube channel:
