I have a large and powerful male lab who is a very fast swimmer. You would think he has a propeller on his butt. At my last club training day, and yesterday at a HT he is squealing like a pig while swimming on the way out to the water marks. He doesnt do this when we are training alone. He gets lots of water marks (ducks) when we train, almost daily. But introduce other dogs to the equation like at the club training day or yesterday at the HT and it's like he cannot get to that duck fast enough.
Is this frustration on his part not being able to get there fast enough , or competiveness on his part with the other dogs being around, or?
I haven't been able to get him to do it when we are alone and training to be able to try and correct it, or is it a battle not even worth worrying about and fighting?
Thanks in advance.
