I usually teach hear first with a check cord and reinforce with a collar. Then I teach hold, starting by getting the dog hold my gloved hand. then move on to bumper and birds. Then move to ff. Then you have some tools. If the dog learns that he has to come to you when you call no mater what. I didn't ff my first dog, but knowing what I know it a lot easer ff out of the gate for me and the dog. You will have a tool to use to build the rest of your training on.
We are training Monday Tuesday and Thursday starting at 500. Come over and we can help you out.
The kcrc club is having a super single trial on Saturday the 13 in Centerview if interested

Hey Dave, Sorry I haven't been on here in awhile but I am in need of some advise. I have my now year old Nelli in training and I want to further him into a started retreiver and not waste something that has so much potential. He loves to retreive and thats great but he has a hard time bringing it back to me! Is there a way that I can get him to bring it back to me? I praise him a lot and its like he hates that he'd rather me throw another bumper than be praised. and also do you recommend force fetching? I have not FF him yet but just need to see what your thoughts were. Thank you!
