    I believe it is better to start pups on grouse if that is to be their primary purpose.  I have been told that a good dog should be able to transition quickly, however, grouse are tough and a dog is best taught early what a grouse will not tolerate.  My dogs hunt both but I like my pups to have grouse exposure first.  YMMV
