Im having trouble working on doubles with my 3YO male FCR. Super high energy dog, incredible drive.
He is 75/80% steady on a place board. When healed, I warm up with single bumper starting short, then out to 20 yards.
Now I'm trying doubles. I take a bumper and toss each out sideways 10 yards. Send dog on his name and he is amazing. back healing to placeboard every time. Now when I extend the doubles, farther out, and I send the dog, he grabs the first bumper, then runs over to the second, drops 1st, picks up 2nd and runs back to me. Of course when I put a check cord on him, to prevent him from doing this, he behaves perfectly.
Any ideas on how to work on this? I thought I could go back to basics, the close in doubles. Problem is, I can do those for hours with zero issues.
Any tips appreciated!
