Hi, I'm new to the site and first let me say hello and happy to be aboard. I'm a firefighter paramedic her in maryland and the only thing I love greater than that is training with my yellow lab Cheyenne. She is 1.5 yrs old and unfourtunately I lost a lot of time in her training due to paramedic school. But we are moving on nicely and I hope to have her testing for junior soon.
My first question is it wrong to throw toys in the yard for her. She is non-stop energy and loves to retrieve everything. Frisbee, football, basketball. Her favorite is the nerf football that whistles. I try to enforce the same concepts in the yard...ie sit heel steadiness, but probably not to the level I due during training sessions. Please tell me what ya think?
