It has been a little while since I have posted anything about Pecos. He is doing great! We have been into all sorts of stuff. He's been coming along great with his tracking work using both blood and a frozen hog leg. He has been getting practice baying a few caged racoons and a small hog. Also he has been dove hunting and has done a great job finding doves and bringing them to me. Surprisingly he has a soft mouth when it comes to doves (though one time he did try to sneek off with one from my pile).

He has grown really fast and continues to impress me. He also has a new lacy friend. My brother-in-law AJ Garcia bought one of the Lowry's pups, Gunner (the one with the white socks). We have been having a good time working them together.

Pecos may end up being a jack of all trades at the risk of being a master of none, but we are having a great time and I enjoy watching him work and use his talents.

It sounds like you're doing great! He's still a puppy...he's supposed to be learning new behaviors. Expose him to all the new activities that you can.

It sounds like you're doing a great job with him. Being exposed to different people, places, and activities will serve him well later in life.

Some will argue that if you want a dog to be REALLY good at a job, you shouldn't train them to do anything else. For some disciplines, that may have some truth to it, but it sounds like, ultimately, you want Pecos to be a dog that can go out and participate in (and help you with) your different hunting/outdoor activities. Also, it sounds like everything (besides the baying) you're doing with him is some kind of scent work. You probably have no intention of turning him into a competition bay pen dog, but I'm sure you want him to be prepared if he ever followed a blood track to an animal that was still alive.

Keep up the good work!

Shon that's wonderful to hear! Love seeing new owners working their pups! Plus since Pecos is older I bet he's helping Gunner to learn too!
