After a good day hunting, do you give your bird dog a special treat, and if so, what? I've been dreaming about fall hunting for a while now.

Never thought about it. Current pup hasn’t hunted yet but regularly gets treats as rewards. Past dogs got spoiled with a burger or something if I happened to use a drive through.

Of course! Dogs (all kinds, not just field dogs ) and treats go together! A favorite biscuit was what we gave, sometime before we ever left the field. Part of lovin` em.

Slice of hotdog, deerdog or whatever, with exceptions, I am eating but after hunting....floating the kibble and adding canned food are two things the pups need and appear to like.

Riley,

Most times my Grouse dogs get some Deer meat mixed in with their evening meal, especially during hunting season. The high protein helps the dogs the next day.

all the best,

After an exceptional find or retrieve, I have been known to occasionally pop off the anterior most appendage of the critter as a quick treat. Probably a very old school and socially unacceptable practice.

Cheap treat. Stop at a McDonalds drive thru and get a cheeseburger treat

I usually add some form of meat/egg to their evening kibble after a day of hunting. They can use the extra calories at that point. Plus their usual Dasequin supplement, which they think is a treat anyway.
