I've a 6 month old GWP pup Im training for ducks and geese in australia.
He's obedience is good, he retrieves anything to me well. I mostly keep him on a check cord for training. I've got him used to shotguns no problems there.
He's very keen on the birds but out in the field he finds them but doesn't want to bring them back.
Even when i throw him a wing or frozen bird at home he wants to shake it and only brings it back after big tugs on the cord to get him back to me.
Any advice appreciated. I know he is very young still.
