    That was great Steve! How long did it take you to position the wingers so that the birds fell in a clear spot that pup could see when he got close? Nice job!!!!

    Good boy Billy!

    Cousin, lots of folks could learn from your demeanor and style on this. Nice, calm, not a whole lot of words or noise. Billy's being "tricked" into doing just want you want, and his reward is the retrieve.

    Set 'em up to succeed...

    Well done! Chris

    Steve is a tremendous asset to retriever folks in these parts---very generous with his time and eager to help new people like me out.
