I am force fetching my first dog. I'm in contact with a trainer and my boss is also helping me, so I have a couple good resources, but I wanted to get some thoughts from some of you.
After getting a solid hold, my 8 mo ylf and I moved onto ear pinch last Sunday. So, today we are on Day 8. She's got the pressure on/off. There are times when she snaps to it and other times when she grits her teeth for 3 or 4 seconds before reluctantly reaching and grabbing. The reluctance comes as I move the bumper farther away. Most is probably a foot or so right now.
Ive contacted the owner of my pup's father (runs a hunting lodge/trains) and he says that he's seen a few going slow and said keep with it. I just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced a dog going slow and if it caused any issues for you. Granted, I don't want this to be drawn out any more than it has to, but I'm not too worried if she takes longer than most. Any comments/advice is appreciated.
