Eika races through the thickets, finds them and when they flush sometimes I see them dash. If I get real lucky, I see where they stop and occasionally they don't disappear and I can make out a silhouette and then maybe I'll have a clear shot. Then and only if it all comes together is it goodnight bunny. Eika then searches for them and pulls them out and brings them to me. It's great way to spend a late afternoon even though most times I just see a flash of a bunny streak by.
Great looking dog! Looks like a GSP. But, definitely could benifit from some knowledgeable training to correct the destruction of prey before the retrieve. That's not a good behavior for a hunting dog.
It can be a very difficult behavior to correct, especially since the pup seems to eat anything. That sock was definitely life threatening. So can small game bones be a hazard to the dogs. If it were my dog I be seeking help from a pro.
