I have Pick of the liter. So what do I look for? The pups are four weeks old today. So I have three weeks to decide on the one I want. So shoot me some tips on what to look for. I will go and see them twice a week from now on. And try to look for what you tell me. There are three Female and four Male. Thank you!

I think I want a Female?

I try to watch the pups and see them develop their own attitudes. Then on the 49 day I bring a dead pigeon or wing w/me. I sep. out the females I want to choose from (sometimes you already know you don't want the lgst. or smlst., not a yellow, etc...) and see which ones are really birdy. Then if it comes down to 2 or 3 - I let them pick me! I just sit down among 'em and let them figure out who wants to go home w/me. I've been doing it this way for 27 years and have had some really nice gun dogs, hunt test dogs and awesome friends!!! Good luck!
