This is a nine bumper pile. It gives a good target for a dog starting off. Like I said though set the dog about ten feet in front of the pile and give your normal fetch command. Then start working the word back into this drill instead of your normal command. Once the dog has latched onto "back", work on extending the distance by about ten yards each session until you have a dog that will run about 100 yards straight back.
Is the dog force fetched?
