Quick question. I have a well bred pup that is currently 4 months old. For his age, the dog has a good mix of drive and smarts. I have a wide open floor plan in my house and the pup will retrieve soft bumpers like a champ (inside). However, once he goes outside, he will retrieve a few bumpers and then appears more interested in all the smells, leaves, etc.
I don't pressure him to retrieve but I'm a little concerned. My other dog was rarely distracted by anything (even other dogs). All he wanted to do was retrieve all day long. Should I be worried?
