Reese did this about 2 weeks ago. Got a bath and brushed twice a day for a few days. Problem solved. If she doesn't seem uncomfortable, I wouldn't worry about it. Farm dog
Hard to beat a good, well-behaving dog. 2 of them is even better!After I brushed, washed, and brushed again, I think it's just a massive shed that lingered until it got really hot. I didn't see much in terms of signs for concern, so we'll see how she is when we get back.
The two on the other hand, are great campers. They lay in the shade all day and do their business when we go on walks in the woods around camp. It's nice having them in camp.

Ha! Yea, there’s definitely a lot less going on in Started so it’s easier to stay calm and focused. Seasoned and Finished, with all their complexities, can absolutely create some stress for the handler. That’ll be the case no matter what dog you’re running. But there’s no denying some dogs give you more additional stress than others! Lol. Betty is that way… always amped to the max… just trying to get her to the line without her falling apart gave me anxiety. I don’t think this new dog will be that way. I think she’ll be one of those dogs you don’t really worry about. So then it’s just a matter of whether I can keep things together myself. Easier said than done! We shall see.Love running test. I’m more nervous that trying to shit a peach seed during the test. Lol. Started I was cool but the upper levels I’m a train wreck inside
Great, talented little dogs. Awesome in the upland. Somewhat high-maintenance hair/coat, but nothing unmanageable. Like most bird dogs, they can be very high strung and require a LOT of physical AND mental stimulation in order to be happy. Never saw one I didn’t like though.Does anyone have any experience with Brittany’s? Looking into possibly getting a pup.
