New puppy day

Postby Professor_Leakey » Sat Jul 04, 2020 12:05 pm

Here’s video of the trainer running Chapo on a long retrieve of a bumper in tall grass.
I ran him a couple times too today but both of my runs he stopped halfway back to relieve himself.

Is your trainer going to Force fetch him? That's the game changer as far as retrievers go. Its really a good thing to have in there.

Chapo hit 10 months today. This retrieve was out 300+ yards and he had to go through a lot of scent from the morning training, birds bumpers etc. He went right through it and was not distracted. Very happy with his progress.

Bean is not a puppy but she is my hunting partner. We attend a hunt test this weekend at Long Island. She ran Finished and earn another pass. This was the water series. It consisted of a triple mark, blind, and a diversion. She nailed it.

Here’s another video of Chapo training at 10 months. He’s had shotguns worked into the training recently. Love the drive he shows here.

New puppy day

Postby Professor_Leakey » Sun Aug 09, 2020 10:19 am

Chapo is home for the weekend for some R and R while the trainer is running other dogs at the field test. Irishwhistler I got your message from Laurie, hope your dogs are doing well at the trials.

Tomorrow I bring Chapo back to the trainer and we are going to start working on force hold. That means Chapo will start doing doubles pretty soon. Very excited to start this and see him progress even farther.

I am amazed at how fit he has gotten in the past 6 weeks, how much progress he has made. He has 6 more weeks with the trainer.

Anyway, here’s a couple pics. He’s 11 months old now and looking good.

Nice progress PL. Looks like he’s waiting for a beer delivery for that empty cooler.
My doctor said drinking heavily can lead to a slow death. I said good, I'm not in any hurry.

Sprout earned her first ribbon at this weekend's test in CT.
The first of many I'm sure.

Chapo just started force hold. The trainer worked with him this time but he’s getting me ready to work on it with Chapo myself.

Not sure if he’d want his face on the forum so I marked it up.

Leakey are you planning to run her in any test. They are a lot of fun and something to do with your dog in the off season. She is a good looking dog.
