Questionable grammar aside, having a "whoa broke" or
"whoa broken" pup is a good thing. The term simply refers to
a pup that knows what "whoa" means and obeys the command
regardless of command's duration or the distractions put in front
Whoa breaking a pup is a long, sometimes frustrating process - those
pups just want to move their feet, especially when they think something
fun is happening around them.
But having a "whoa broken" pup pointing birds for you naturally
leads to better things, like a pup that is
steady to wing and shot.
So the next time you're in the field and the grizzled old hunter next to
you says "Hey, is your pup whoa broke?" don't bother correcting his
grammar! Give 'em a "yep" or "nope" and keep hunting!
