Outdoor Life Intelligent people learn by experience, and wise people learn from the experience of others, which makes Mark Fulmer of Aiken, S.C., the wisest breeder/trainer I've encountered in years. After extensive research, Fulmer adopted the most innovative plans, broadened them with his own ideas and adapted them to the methods of Mother Nature, who, he says, got it right long ago.

Sarahsetter's Bo is gone


Bo turns Sixteen Today

Bo's sixtenth birthday was celebrated in fine fashion with another Bucket of KFC chicken. Bo is a bit wobbly in the back end but his eyes are full of desire to be my dog. Bo represents the epitome of my breeding program. A natural bird dog that never had a day of formal training in his life. Bo's desire to please is endless. Bo has been a fixture in the office for the last three years.


Bo's Birthday Party- Count Down

This is Bo's fifteenth birthday celebration. Here at Sarahsetter we enjoy our old friends to the end and every dog that makes it to fourteen is treated with de-boned KFC chicken. We hope Bo make's it to June 4th for his sixteenth birhday!


Interesting article: Scents and Sensibility

Check out this article on WebMD, Scents and Sensibility.I found this article while searching for dog scenting articles and thought because it is in human terms it might help provoke everybody's thought processes. My thought processes follow this train of thought everyday as I wonder when a dog sniffs the ground or air. Does he smell something a few minutes ago or yesterday or last week or last month. What is truly amazing is that spot has had a hundred or maybe a thousand different scents and the dog is still able to focus on the one line of scent that has caught his interest. I will never understand until the day comes when a dog speaks to me in English. We can only marvel at their abilities. Finally if Sprout ever talks to me I will tell no one because everybody will think I am crazy!


Good News - Regular Training Rates stay the same

because we are adding a new training rate. We are introducing a new rate for dogs that need rehabilation or training outside of the normal training cycle. A growing portion of my business has become rehabs that have developed problems. The difficulty of training older dogs warrants an increased fee.
