    I won't say welcome back...thanks for not leaving, though.

    Sorry the link doesn't work. But, you catch the drift.

    OK. I would like to see you try the following rather than taking bumper like in first vid.

    Let dog settle into heel/sit. Reach over his head and take hold of rope. Hold hand still while making dog continue to hold if necessary. (If dog drops before your give command make him fetch/hold)
    With you holding rope ask dog to Give or Drop and let bumper "fall out" of dogs mouth. As it swings away take bumper behind dogs back and yours.
    So, getting dog into habit of hold then "drop" to give you the bird will provide more benefits later on vs "taking" birds from dog.
    Hope that makes sense.
    Nice to see you back Wayne. Thanks for sharing!

    Breck thanks for reminding us. I was thinking this the other day that my dog was not sitting when I took the bumper from his mouth. It is easy to let something like this slide!

    I would like to see a little more backbone alignment with Rowdy. You seem to allow him to line up to the right when he comes to heel. I can see his first few steps are aiming at the 2 o'clock direction. Sometimes it helps to have someone stand behind you to judge the lineup or step back to check, as its sometimes hard to tell while standing over the dog. That will have some bearing on the initial lines later on. Wagon wheels and push-pull drills really help in that area. It also gives you a leg tap tool to push and pull with to adjust alignment.
