My dog delivers to hand and has been through FF all the way to double TT and we are going to start swim-by next week probably. My dog loves water and would rather swim and be honest 9 times out of 10 than cheat so I dont see swim-by being too terribly difficult. The trouble that I am having is my dog will retrieve, bring the bird all the way back to me and shake right beside me. Typically she will either do one of 2 things: 1) when she gets to me she drops the bird, shakes, then picks the bird back up and heels 2) shakes with the bird/bumper in her mouth sometimes dropping it during shaking and then either picks it back up if she drops it and then heels to deliver.
I would like her to deliver at heel and then once I take the bird, to shake. Any ideas on how to fix this? Is it related to FF?
I am following Lardys TRT but do not recall seeing this anywhere as everything is done on land until swim-by but after watching it, I did not see him addressing it anywhere either.
Anyone got any tips and tricks as to a simple way to achieve this?
