Just saw one of your dogs is a weim!!! Sorry for posting like 3 times in rapid succession but this thread has gotten me my jollies quit a bit we had Weims while I was growing up. Takes a special kind of owner to train one well and keep them happy and mentally healthy. Very much worth it is they really are one of a kind dogs. I'd have one now if time and space permitted. Here's some pics of our last one, Hans. He's passed now but what a great dog he was. Not a conformation specimen for sure as he was a brawny old hoss but super dog, made friends wherever he went!







Ok after posting all over my thread in like 5 minutes I'm done for a while, I swear!

This is the fish that started it all! Sorry to get off topic. Excuse my attire (I had been living in the woods for 4 months ). And yes, British Columbia is a beautiful place, I can't see myself anywhere else!

I really like hunting dogs, but I don't think they fit my lifestyle right now. There are a pair of Coonhounds in the SPCA right now that have been there for almost 6 months now

BC is nice if you like snow!

And bugs.

Really, those are the only seasons we get up here in the North.

Unfortunately, I don't have any decent pics of hunting trips... hmmm, I might have some fishing ones and pre-skinned rabbit's though. I'll have to check.

Ugh. Yeah. The bugs are the worst up North. I'm a treeplanter and they drive me INSANE (well more sane than most treeplanters still...). I'm on Van Island for school now though, so no snow this season for me. I'm from a ski town in the East Kootenays so it snows a lot.

I love seeing these hunting photos! Remy would drool if she saw them

I live in the North and it's just... ugh, one thing I definitely wouldn't miss if I moved!

Tsk, lucky duck. Vancouver has, like the mildest winter ever. We just got a foot in less than 24 hours! Hopefully that's the last large snowfall before March.

Kay, found some random photos layin' 'round.

The first rabbit of last year.



The pics of the skinnin' are... embarrassin' considerin' I'd never done it before. I need to take some new ones.



Fishin' trip to... um, can't remember...



Me n' Moko on a hiking trip! This was when I first got 'er and she's soooo fat! Nice an' trim now



Fishing trip to... Trembueler Lake (I think).

Yeah, I'm up in your area usually for 3-4 months a year. This is my first winter over here and it is definitely... different than I'm used to. Mackenzie was super bad 2 summers ago for bugs.

Cool pictures! Have you trained your Shiba as a hunting dog? Or is she more of a hunting companion?

Hahaha, "different" is the word. We've had a couple of years where's it's been ridiculous. We went camping up in Fort St John one year and the bugs were so bad we could barely hunt >:

If Moko was younger and wasn't blind in one eye I would train her better. My main hunting interest is small game and that's what Shiba's were built to do Since she does have those drawbacks she's a hunting companion. Not that she doesn't try to be a part of the hunt! She's got enough enthusiasm for four dogs.

If I end up getting a second Shiba or another once Moko passes I would like to train it to flush small game. Unfortunately, I don't think any breeders actually train/breed the Shiba for what it was originally meant to do. I'll basically have to do my best and cross my fingers.

Nice fish! Idk if you have all the species we have around here but it almost looks like brook trout? Also, way jealous of living in the woods for 4 months! In the summer I head down river and camp sandbars and islands but only ever have time for like 4 days tops

Wow very cool! I'd love to bag a varying hare someday. We just have cottontails and jackrabbits here. Cottontails are more common thank goodness, the jacks are so big and fast unless you run greyhounds you'll never hit one, and even slow roasted those wiry jacks have the consistency of a taffy pull.

I'm glad we can talk about hunting on here, I thought we would have been shunned...

I would have loved to have seen my springer working in the field by my side but it wasn't to be, I didn't have the experience he needed but he is now in a working home loving life to the max!

I do hope to run my lurcher on a few rabbits, anyone do that sort of thing on here?

I found that the hunting forum that I was on was useless because I was bombarded with different peoples methods/opinions so much that I couldn't see right from wrong.
