|Molly and Dottie learning the way around the Home Cover.|
Yesterday was rather interesting here at the kennel. Tony and I have agreed to stay out of our main training covers until at least late June to give the grouse and woodcock chicks a chance to get to the flying stage (although the woodcock will be flying long before then). So we ran in a cover near the house that is usually just a flight cover in the fall with an occasional resident woodcock or grouse in the summer. It’s always been someplace that good to just let the dogs get some exercise. Well, yesterday we ran a couple pairs of dogs through this cover and found to separate woodcock that at this late date are definitely resident birds.
