    Default Ugly Carry

    My 6 month old female is doing great with obedience and single marks on land and water. But she doesn't carry the bumper or ATB correct. Most times she mouths it then picks it up with her front teeth or by the throw rope. every now and then she grabs it right. What can I do to clean this up other than force fetch? I dont think she's ready for f.fetch yet.

    Take the throw rope out, if you can. Give her no other way of picking it up. It makes a huge difference when they have to pick it up correctly

    She may have a sore mouth right now too. I agree with taking the rope away but if the problem persists, you are not but a few weeks out on force fetch so you may need to suspend marking until you are done. Good luck.
