    Uh, oh... You may have created a monster. He'll be constantly knocking things down now so he can pick them up and bring them to you. :twisted:

    I've used the Dobbs method of collar conditioning and collar training with cold burns. It does work. It'll freak out some dogs.

    I have also used the Lardy total retriever training method. Go...

    Whoops, that was my bad. I almost never run a single blind, so I just automatically said blinds instead of blind.

    I guess you and I are about on the same page, I don't often run the blind first...

    Every time I see Gordy Powers make a callback I get a smile on my face. Maybe I could say GGG, Go Gordy, Go. :)

    Hey Hopalong, Is there any reason you ran the blinds first and then the marks through and/or around them? I almost always run the marks first or interupt the marks with a blind. Not 100% though. ...

    Mine have always wanted to continue to work. I stop running them when they start to look really big in comparison to their normal look. Generally, this has been about 2 weeks prior to whelping.

    Money Talks II is in your neck of the woods, Maine I think.

    In Illinois, our own Justice dog has one. Can't remember his name though.

    If they like retrieving one day and don't the next, the first thing I look at is something physical. I'd bet it's the pins coming out so give her another 10 days and try again. I wouldn't be...
