    Default I'm new...with a question

    So I am new, hoping to find a bit of advise. I have a 7 month yellow lab and he is learning very well but I am having trouble getting him to hand off after a retrieve instead he drops just a little early. Any ideas of how to fix this?

    praise him while he has the bumper in his mouth and he gets back to you... if he spits it out, toss it out a few feet and have him pick it up again, and then praise while in his mouth.

    formalizing it, you would go with force fetch procedure.

    <-- newbie, take comments with salt.

    In Mike Lardy's program if the dog has not been FF, you just pick up the bumper and press on if the dog was bringing the bumper or bird to the area of the line.

    Once FF is complete, you would require delivery to hand.
