I didn't get around to this yesterday, except for filming it. Only had 30 min of daylight after work so we got straight out of the truck and ran these two poison birds. She has a controlled break on the first - my fault for not warming her up and giving her a cold right off the bat. This was our first time in the field since duck season started.
If I can be my own critic, I am obviously in a big hurry bc of the light situation. I didn't have a good place to do this on water, so I had to run it down the shore. It is not ideal, and you can tell she really didn't want to be handled back toward the shore.
Anyway, never been FF... Don't use a collar... Both sire and dam are imported from Ireland. I realize this thread went to clicker training, but this is referring back to top of the thread. I'm not trying to convince anyone the pup is amazing and can do absolutely everything, just that at a young age she can do what was questioned earlier in post # 17
