Starting an older Dog question

Postby Muleskinner9 » Wed Mar 31, 2021 1:50 pm

I have found a GYP in the breeding line I would like to start to cross with my male. Question is she's 15 months and never seen the woods. Never started, I can justify her, if I can get her to start. Reason she hasn't is an older fella has her and his wife has had some health issues, so he hasn't had time, Would you try a 15 month old? Timing is good since our spring training season is just starting for bear. Would you try her?

Yes, from my readings and experience I would not see a issue. I have saw dogs start as early as 6 month and as late as 2 years. Which from research and readings it is all preference on when to start dogs on any given species of animal. I prefer to start mine earlier but that is preference. I would give it a shot. 15 months isn't that old.
