Hello. I have been lucky enough to own and train two labs so far. Both earned their HRCH and I have a pretty good sense of how to train a dog to hold. I have a new lab that just turned 7 months and am having trouble getting him to hold. I was activated for the military when he was 3 to 6 months and missed that time where I got to reinforce it with my other labs. The dog loves to retrieve abd I have been working on HOLD for the past three weeks with little improvement. Any possible sugestions would be useful as I want to force fetch him as I am scheduled for another round of deployed time from DEC 1 through June 30, 2014.
