GUN DOG 2015 Puppy Gallery

Training a new gun dog is an exercise in patience...and that's an understatement. Whining, crying, screeching barks at 3 a.m. and outraged calls from the neighbors are all a part of the game.

But a young dog is plenty of fun too; why else are we willing to go through this ardous process? Free runs in light cover, training drills in the backyard and summer water work at your favorite fishing hole all lead to that glorious first retrieve or point. And there's no better satisfaction for a true bird hunter than seeing a young dog lock up on a rooster or chase down a crippled greenhead.


Those days will arrive, but for now let the kids enjoy that round ball of fur (when you're not training him or her). Because some day pup will turn into a hunting and fetching machine, busting through brush, mud flats and all sorts of foul stuff the lady of the house won't want pup tracking across the kitchen floor — unless of course SHE's the hunter in the family.



And if the cute faces shown here aren't enough, you can see even more puppy pics from readers.
