    4th retriever, first that's not a lab. The Mrs. has always loved Goldens, and I'm planning on getting her more involved in the training/games. Not looking to start a "Lab vs Golden" debate, or a...

    Bad, bad, bad... when, on a hike with the dogs, one "retrieves" a half decomposed squirrel, sits at heel, proud as punch about her find that stinks to high heaven mind you, and then does exactly as...

    Totally agreed. I have a BLF rescue that I've been through all of the above with. When I got her at 2, she was gun shy and had next to zero desire to retrieve, she'd roll over when you said "sit"...

    I'll second that. I have a couple of the Dokken teal. They are small, and the heads break off, but they work well with my BB's. I tie streamers to them where the head used to be.

    FF should clean up all the possission/mouth issues you mentioned.
