ok a little background first, i bought my lab (named him Lucky) when he was 5 months old..he comes from a good background and all...I have had him for a little over a week
in that week i work with him 15-30 min a day (depending on the things i have going on that day)
I pretty much got him to sit whenever he is actually paying attention to me, and i got him trained a little bit on stay...i can get to about 10 feet away before he wants to move...and of course, he retrieves his dummy like hes never going to see it again lol
ok now for my questions..
1) is he training fairly quick or slow?
2) any tips on how i can get him to stay past 10 feet or so
3) any tips or hints on how i can make him wait until I say go to get the dummy...right when i throw he takes off like a mad man after it
4) any other tips are greatly appreciated since I have never trained a dog to duck hunt before
