Forming the retrieve is something that we work on from the very start with our retrievers. We talk a lot about hold conditioning, but that does not come into play until the dog is mature. We recently had a question come in about a guy who turned his dog off of retrieving, and was wondering how to reverse his mistakes. In this episode, we discuss the ways we encourage and perfect a forming the retrieve, and how to avoid bad habits associated with retrieving.
Also, a HUGE THANK YOU to the Turnpike Troubadours for allowing us to use a snippet from one of our all-time favorite songs The Bird Hunter. Make sure to check out their music, they are a favorite of ours.
