    he wants to wait till january as the shooting season will be finished and he can spend time with a new one while leaving him free to concentrate on the big one from october-january as its only his second working season

    There are some litters around, but not too many as most will be working their dogs. If people have a lots of dogs, they may put one in whelp over the shooting season.

    You do have to think ahead when looking for working dogs. They are usually about 18 months - 2 years old before fully trained so it actually might be worth getting a pup now and then the pup will be ready for more advanced stuff in January. You do still need to put in the basics though. The pup may then potentially be ready for at least experiencing a shoot at the end of the following season.
