Hello I'm new here, lots of good information I've been reading but I have ran into a situation with my chocolate lab (10 months old) with dropping her retrieves at my feet. I guess I indirectly caused this problem but I've been looking for the most effective way to fix it. She retrieves... comes straight back and drops at my feet and goes to heel. As far as her progress... sit, heel, come, single marks, double marks, live birds, introduction to guns, and water work with single marks. What I was planning on doing to fix the dropping was to work on hold and do force fetch while discontinuing any sort of retrieve training. My question is if this is the right direction I need to head in. If not any advice would be very helpful. This is my first lab I've ever trained looking forward to start AKC/HRC hunt tests this fall.
