You are more than welcome Dan. I was just passing on Marieke's wisdom. Good to hear that he is in the advanced class.
It takes some time with Italian pointers (the long haired and short haired versions) but they do wisen up when they get older. I have a young male Bracco Italiano living here at the moment. He is a clown and it takes Marieke a lot of effort to get him focused when she is entering him in field trials. She is certain that he'll end up being a very good and disciplined hunting dog.
And yes, they do have this smartness over them. evaluating if punishment is worth the crime. You'll have some 'incidents' before he grows up though, I am sure of that.
I'll let you know when the puppies arrive!
