Now that I have my pup swimming enthousiastically, she will retrieve thrown marks whiles she is swimming or will jump in and swim and make retrieves.
The problem is she does not pick up a bumper in the water, if the water is shallow and she can stand in the water. She will run to the bumper and push the bumper with her foot and nose it in the water and not want to pick it up.
I know that I could fix this in force fetching, but is there a way to finess this? Maybe more marks on land and marks in water where she has to swim?
