Double retreive

Postby openwaterhunter » Fri Oct 07, 2005 4:04 pm

I have been working with my 11 month old Chocolate lab now for 2 weeks on double retreives. Today in a pouring rain she finally figured it out. She had 6 perfect (in my book) double retrieves in a row at up to 75 yards of course it was with bumpers but sill yet thats a big leap. She stayed steady and at heal she marked VERY well each and every time, fetched and came back to heal. I couldn't be more pleased.

keep up the good work. the only word of caution i can offer is to keep the distances short until the dog is very comfortable with the marks, remembering, etc.

O.W.H
Man that's great news to hear. Keep on it .
On a personal note, it makes you swell up with pride inside knowing that YOU did it, nobody but you. This is the making a good hunting partner.
Keep us inform on the progress. Hawk.
