If i was going to use "object" training it would be 12oz beer cans!! For obvious reason!!
We are all affraid that at some point our dog is going to blink a bird and we are going to have to force them to retrieve... Anyone ever have to force their dog to pick up a duck??? I bet no.

Instead of working to turn off the pressure, I think he was just trying to survive it.
