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.
Talk 'em into givin' up!

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.
