    Default Problem with doubles.

    Hi I am new to the webstie.But just wanted to join and get some good info on training my Yellow Lab Male. He is 12 weeks old on the 21 of March. I have him working doubles now. But He wants to try and pickup both dummies at the same time. How do I stop him from doing that? Thanks for the help. Retired

    Retired,
    Based on your question you need to learn a bunch of stuff quickly. I suggest clicking on this link and ordering the Sound Beginning puppy training DVD.
    It will be a very big help guiding you through the proper things to do with your puppy. It begins with puppies the same age as yours so getting it now would be better than waiting.
    Cheers

    I could not agree more, I have about a dozen lab training DVDs but it all started with Sound Beginnings.

    What I have done over the years is to use the corner of a building or fenced in area with the 90 degree angle. Right throw first, left throw second. Never had that problem. Next, I reversed the throws and always enforced which bird/bumper I wanted retrieved first. This worked for me.

    Later, I would use a wooded area as the division.

    I should of said he does the 180 degree great. It is the doubles that I throw together that he has the issue with. I will looking into the video. I did buy evan graham puppy program. Guess I need to look at it again. Thanks Retired

    Stay the course here and you will learn. Get a puppy training dvd. Best money you will ever spend. Get it before you mess up that pup of yours.

    I would guess that every person's puppy is different. I myself did not ask my puppy to do doubles at 12 weeks of age. I didn't even bring her out into the field yet (vet's advice,re immunity). Maybe you should adjust your pace.

    What makes you think this is the right pace? My opinion is that many push their puppies because of what they read on here. In fact I think that Bridget Bodine's thread WAITING TO COMPETE IN FIELD TRIALS might contain some food for thought.
