My two year old lab breezed through force fetch this spring when we began formal training. Never drops a bumper or duck during training or junior hunt test and has handled a few live ducks and 4 geese real well this season. Problem began yesterday on pheasant and quail. He has dropped both before getting back to me and then refused to hold them when i put them back in his mouth - even with collar pressure. On today's retrieve he dropped it short and when i ordered him to fetch he rolled over on his back. No amount of pressure would make him pick up the bird. Question is should I quit the upland hunting and start all over again with force fetch or wait till the season is up and then address it - apparently I wasn't too good doing it the first time, but he seemed to really get it - grabbed everything in front of him.
