I have a 5 month old female who has been doing very well with the basic obdience. When she was a little younger I started just tossing a little puppy bumber a few feet and she would bring it right back. Now that she is getting a little older and she wants to play keep away so I started to use the check cord to reinforce here. She will go right to the mark and pick it up when I try to use the cc to steer her back to me she either drops the bumber or she will end up getting tied up in knots with the cc. She also tries to chew on the cord. She is very full of energy and puts on a great chase for the bumber no matter how far you throw it. I know she is probably teething as she is now wanting to lay down and chew on the bumber.
Should I stay away from the retrieving far know while she is teething and just continue to do basic ob. and start working her on the cc to get her use to it. I am at a lost as to what to do any thoughts will be greatly appreciated!!
