    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

    Yep, I know this against the women's code to say in mixed company, but it's true I'm a little hormonal this week. And hubby has a cold, which means snoring which means no sleep for me.

    Anyway, I posted the Dave Mason song to lighten the mood. Now I see WRL and Hunt em up have done that better than me!

There are many good things we can all take from good trainers wherever they're from. And I'm confident that the dogs don't really know or care what country they're from. It just always gets this way, sadly.

    Evan you are correct. It is lack of respect for the other person's opinion or way they do things.

    Positive training I would do in flash with my 3 yo. But is not the route to go with my pup or my 10 yo, who is much like the pup, noisy fire breathing dragons, no focus, food mongers and on their own planet not going anywhere. but are having fun!!!!!!!!!!

    Bottom line: You are your dog's advocate so you be the judge of what program will suit them best and you feel comfortable with. Read your dog!And you can learn best by listening as well.

    Bartona,

    You need to edit the privacy setting for this video. You currently have it set as Private. That setting requires that you specify up to 50 users that you allow viewing access. Those users must login so that they are recognized as being on your list.

    The other two options, either Public or Unlisted, would allow us to view it from the link you posted.
