Our usual late winter training consists of turning a bunch of dogs loose on a dead end road with no traffic and letting them have fun. It was too cold Monday and Tuesday this week but they’ve been out every day since. They really can’t get into the woods much as the snow is still a little deep. But it’s good to get them some exercise and soon the snow will settle and we’ll start looking for some grouse. The year old puppies — Sam, Glo, Maddie, and Little Frankie — get a little over 30 minutes on the ground and the little puppies from Kentucky get about 20 minutes.
