Default Looking to rehome a male GSP hunting dog

I posted last July bout a 4yr old(now5) trained GSP male bird dog. Hes housebroken though i have a doggy door, hes capable of jumping my 6 foot brick wall but hasnt done it in quite some time lol. I hunted him this last year and he and my female did pretty good, my female has no formal training but she has massive instinct so they worked really well as a pair, He does honor her points which i think is really cool since this was only my second year ever hunting. Hes been in contact with about 10 dogs since ive had him and 2 of those dogs he unfortunately had an incident with 1st time was definitely started by the other dog, the second time was because the other dog who we didnt know walked up to him and got into his face and he didnt like it apparently and went after her but after all the noise and commotion he did no damage to the other dog just mostly yelling at her i guess. He's actually a really good dog otherwise, but im about to sell my house and downsize to a small condo so he'll be to big for it. Let me know if interested i can send pics if so. Just want him to go to a good home where he has what he has now if not more. He'd come with a Sportdog E-Collar a Transport Kennel(which he hates) a collar/leash and a bed, not looking to profit off him just trying to get some of what i got into him plus making sure the new owner is serious so about $300. Let me know via PM and those interested can text more pics. I'm located in Palm Desert area.

Where is your location and it would be beneficial to know what your ballpark rehoming fee is.

I'd forget the fee and just try to find him a good home. Get your dogs "formal" training. If not, this is what happens. Yes, your GSP has natural hunting and prey drive, but it sounds as if some obedience training is also required. If this dog isn't placed in a good home and receive formal training, what you are experiencing will only get worse. No offense, but as a new hunter, you need training as well so you can maximize your experience with your dog. If you are in the Sacramento or Chico area I can provide you with information on excellent trainers, hunting and obedience. But please, if you are determined not to keep the dog, forget trying to get money out of it and place it in a home where it will get the training it needs and deserves.

He's 5 I got him a year ago from Ron Soden from Bakersfield I guess I didn't mention he has been fully trained by him, my female is the one w/o training. I'm not selling the dog I'm recouping the money spent on the E-collar/kennel etc. I'm not trying to dump him off anywhere because he is a good dog and deserves a good home so anyone serious about hunting would gladly pay for a hunting dog and not mistreat him. I appreciate your advice but it's going to go this way or he stays with me

I agree with including a nominal fee for the dog, shows you only want him to go to a serious home. Free devalues the dog. If you can't afford a rehoming fee, you likely (not always) can't afford to take care of the dog in a quality manner. Nice looking dog by the way. Best of luck.

Maybe some GSP rescue groups would do a courtesy posting for you/get him listed on Petfinder, etc.?

Tbh with you I'm not super rushed to rehome him because as I said he's a good dog he's just a big moose of a dog, I came here to post figuring maybe a fellow calgunner that hunts or wants to hunt would give him a good home. I know I can drop him off at a shelter but I'd feel terrible since he's got a good home with me I want it to be an easy transition for him. Also wanted to note I took him pheasant hunting about a dozen times last season so wasn't just a couple.

Didn't you post about this dog last year? Wasn't he the escape artist who would constantly jump your fence?

Reduced rehoming fee just to pay for E-Collar and kennel because I'm downsizing places soon and I want him to get a good home

Hylas - Try posting this in the California sub-forum of duck hunters chat and the refuge forums.

Who bred your female? She is a gorgeous dog.

I also hunt the hay fields of the IV. Shot 13 roosters over my 4 year old GSP this past season.

Goodluck with finding a home.

She was a rescue that a friend of a friend needed rehoming, but her natural instinct and nose is insane, she pointed **** birds in front of my buddy's house prior to me ever taking her hunting, she learned real quick what was needed was pretty badass. I think she's gorgeous as well, the pic doesn't do her justice. Highly intelligent.

My previous post indicting he was a prime candidate for a "club" dog was somehow missing. Reconsider. That dog for just the price of the e-collar is a steal for anyone needing a pointer.
