I've have a seven month old male Vizsla and he is a riot. He has an endless amount of energy and he is already a big part of the family. He also has the natural retriever instinct...he'll retrieve almost anything thrown and drop it with a "dead" command. We just finished our first obedience training and he obeys come, sit, stay, heel, don't touch and wait commands...although he still has his "moments".
Anyway, the vet suggested I take him to a local trainer who teaches dogs to run obstacle courses to burn some of that energy off. Sounds OK...but, do you think it will do him any good or will it screw him up in the field? I want to end up with a good BIRD DOG!
Your thoughts please.
