Why is a force fetch needed for a dog that is crazy about the retrieve? I understand that the reason people do it is for those situations when the dog chooses not to retrieve, or to not retrieve the right thing. But it those situations, it seems to me that a little scruff shake will do the trick just as well as an ear pinch?
I am not opposed to an ear pinch, by any means...I just want to understand why you would do it for a dog that is already retrieved obsessed.
I do not do field work, I only do competitive obedience. But I think that field people have a deeper understanding of this process. I've tried very hard to understand this. Please try to explain in very basic terms. Thank you for helping me to learn....I appreciate your kindness and generosity in sharing your years of experience in this area.
