Well with all the encouragement i got from you guys i finaly made the decision to get my pup. He is 8 months old, has 25 + field champs on his pedegree and is one damn cute dog! ( ok so i used cute). I will be bringing him home next week, i am now just getting the back yard ready. I am making a kennel, and such. I want to thank everybody who gave me great advice on my other post ( am i ready for a dog). Thank you very much!

funny note: I was talking to my wife about getting the dog, and i was showing her pics and comming up with names.. I chose the name hunter.... the next day as i talked to the breeder i asked the dogs name.. he said JAEGER, which is hunter in german!

Jaeger is a GSP, 8 months old. he has been started on his training. he points real well, kennels on command, and is very alert! when i and the breeder were discusing him, he just kept pointing and pointing at the birds that flew on the ground! so damn cute!

the books the breeder recomended were " best way to train your hunting dog" and suggested i get a pinch collar and such.
now i am going to need help training him correctly!
so any help/advice would be again apreciated.

Thanks again for the advice on the books/videos.
just want to clear some things up. I am only kenneling the dog for its own protection. I have chain link all in the back yard and just incase he gets curious and starts to dig a hole and gets out lord knows what might happen to him. I am letting him in the house when i am home, and plan on morning lessons and evening lessons on weekends. (ofcourse a few casual hunts) i am looking forward to it, and will be so glad to have the freindship of the pup.
( Man today was a bad day, and went to my neighbors yard to pet his dog. :D hahahah)
