Should I be trainning my lab to hold the duck until I give the release command or bring it back and drop it? If it is hold it how do you go about trainning that techhique?

I agre it is nice to grab a bird right out of the dog's mouth. I have heard of bird's swimming off, when a dog drop's them but from what I have seen, the dog can usaully snatch them back up with in ten feet. I suppose if it is a real light hit bird it could be a challenge. I geuss it is what ever you prefer, but I still like it being handed to me
