Like Steve said, work on obedience when you get free time after you get back from hunting. It only takes 10 minutes a day. Save all the wings off your ducks you shoot and play with your dog with them. Tape them to a small nerfball and play fetch, just always make it fun. I personally like to get my dogs birdy at a very young age.
Your pup should be about ready next season as long as you work on obedience. Obedience is so important, it often gets over looked. Find a NAHRA or similar dog club around there, people are often more than willing to help for free. If you have any questions post them up on here, Steve and some other guys are very knowledgable and more than willing to help.
