    As a youngster I thought I was "ten feet tall, made out of solid steel, and going to live forever". Hearing protection was for wuss's. Now at age 50 "what" is my most used word. Protect your ears....

    You just got him 3 weeks ago
    He's already been CC'd

    Ahhh another command not mentioned by the OP. I use "load up" to place the dog "on" a spot (table, rug, porch). I use "kennel" to place the dog "in" something (crate, pen)

    The use of the dogs name as a release is vital if you are hunting multiple dogs (don't say you never will). If there are two or more dogs and someone yells "fetch", "back", "go"... which dog is...

    I've been letting Gauge watch Big Bang Theory. I think he's learning quantum physics. Without opposable thumbs he can't really show you on the chalk board.

    That is a good looking pup!

    I agree with Willie. A lot of people are asking $6K-$8K but buyers are not going above $3K-$5K.
    Even at $6K, it's less than most dogs will cost you to get to HRCH title.

    I'm not sure about this. My back pile is 80 yards. I'll try closer in tonight, but my guess is he will not associate a stop that short with a cast. It will be further out that he anticipates the...

    Remote sits facing over

    Iíve seen this problem before. During T work the dog learns that a stop on the whistle is going to result in a cast. He begins to guess which direction and sits facing that way. The advice I was...

    I'm glad you recognized you method wasn't working early, and have decided to delay training until you have studied up. She will be a much better dog as a result. Congratulations
