I just saw this thread. Sorry for the late response. Sounds like you got a bunch of good answers already. Field trial dogs have allot of stuff they have to do that you will probley never use in the blind. A finished dog is obediant,forcefetched and steady. The dog is doing 100 or so yard blinds. Steady to shot and sits good in the blind. Honors another dog and wont pick up decoys. Multiple marks and watches the sky. Basicaly the same as a finished hunt test or field trial dog just on a smaller scale i guess you would say. Very seldom will you ever need more than a 100 or so yard mark or blind while duck hunting. Now if you goose hunt allot you may need a little more but not offen.

but what is your definition of a meat dog? How far do you train them before you say they are finished and the owner can come pick them up?

What isnt clear about it? The dog is doing everything in this post. Thats when it goes home. Thats what i call a finished meat dog. A dog that can and will do everything listed. This takes around 7 or 8 months. We charge $300 per month.

What is your definition of a meat dog? I know years ago yall use to do mostly field trial and hunt test dogs. You may not remnember but i stopped in and talked to you several years ago. We were headed from monroe to milledgeville and stopped by on our way and talked to you. I guess it was you. You said then that yall did allot of field trials and i think you said yall did trials at the farm at that time.
