    Well I did try to get clarification.....sort of.

    I was thinking the same thing, he probably thinks we are a bunch of jerks - I hope he can see the humor in all of this....if not oh well.

    Default guys....

    this is terrible, but I still can't figure out what the first question was?

    Is the dog "sitting" at the line and then breaking "not sitting" when a duck is thrown/shot? That's the only scenario I can decipher for a 9 month old. If that's the case, then go back to basic OB. "Sit" means "SIT" until I tell you to do something else. Following the advice of others on this forum, I've raised the bar on required OB. "Sit" while talking at the tailgate after training does not mean sit for 10 seconds, and then run to play with the other dogs airing out, and there is a correction for that. Also, I make her sit at feeding time and watch food being poured, water filled, (sometimes a greenie even pops out) until I tell her it's ok to break. 100% reponse every time, ALL the time. Step up the expectations for yourself, and your pup will follow. Great way is to get a 20' lead and a pinch collar, sitting the dog, and walking in circles around it, slightly putting tension on the lead. If he/she breaks, return to same spot (with pinch pressure), "Sit"- Heeling Stick- "Sit". Just a suggestion.

    Hi Chris-
    Welcome to our dysfunctional little group! First two things you need to do, in my opinion, after scanning through all of your 8 rtf posts. First, stop typing in all capital letters. It is the internet equivalent of screaming at someone. Second, type your posts on your email program or Word and then cut and paste them into your rtf text box. That way you can use spell check and we might have a little better clue as to what you are asking, OK? We all anxiously await your next cryptic question. 8)

    I agree!!

    I feel sorry for the original poster also!!

    My humor leaves much to be desired!! I apologise!!

    I think he has a problem with the dog sitting while holding a duck!!

    I thought the thread would probably end up with another long discussion about FF (Force Fetch)

    Just thought I'd have some fun!

    Sorry if I offended anyone!!! Thought it would promt the original poster to re-post.

    I did enjoy it though!!

    Maybe dog won't sit when duck flies up? (Flushing)

    This one is a puzzler.
