    Default Vocalizing on return

    I have a six month old Blf, we have not begun ff but are about to start. She Does not vocalize on retrieves or at the line waiting to be released. However, on delivery to hand she has begun to bark/vocalize. I read thus as a form of parading, but would appreciate your thoughts. she begins a few feet from me.
    Also, I assume ff will probably correct this or give a better standard to enforce? She usually only gives a few yips.
    thanks
    First post on here but I have been long time lurker thanks for the help.

    She's barking with a bird in her mouth?

    I make my dogs sit for their dinner. When I give them the OK to eat, my springer gives me a "bark of joy". It is a single short bark. Is this what your dog might be doing, i.e. giving you a bark of joy upon delivery? If it is, you may not want to correct it but reward silence instead.
