Might be normal behavior but never noticed it much before with other dawgs. Ten month old fem with very nice mouth manners no rolling, chomping and a soft delivery buuut on "fun bumpers only" she will give the bumper a death shake on the way in but still with a perfect gentle delivery. Anything to be concerned about/watch or just a litl' normal subtle prey posession aka no biggie?

PS Yes, thoroughly F-F'd a given.
PSPS "Here, Nick, Here" not an option! :wink:

My peake will do that once in a while on a retrieve she feels really good about. If you are concerned, tie a washer on the rope, she will self-correct.

Peake,

I would look at that as a simple violation of here on the dawgs part.

Little pop on the rope or what ever correction you think will fit should cure it.

FWIW, both of my current dogs...BLM...almost always shake when coming from the water with a bumper in their mouth. It's always amused me to see them shake the bumper, with the throw cord flopping along with their ears.

It has never carried over to any birds, where it matters. While a Chessy is slightly different.. :roll:...I'd save my concern for it happening under other circumstances. JMHBFWDAO, Dave.

If what you call the “death shake” is what I’m envisioning, here is my experience.

I used to enjoy watching my dog give the fun bumper “the little death shake” when we were playing. I thought it was cute. Sign of a happy dog, right?

I became horrified when she did it at a hunt test in the third series about 5 yards out from the line.

I can’t afford the little happy death shake dance anymore. Its very expensive.

Chessies, being notoriously smart, know the difference between play and work. You didn't say whether or not she does it every time on FBs or just once in a while but my guess would be that this too shall pass. :)

Peak,
one word of caution with the DFT, yes they were made with the thought of self correcting a dog from shaking the bumper of bird. The problem is the dog might learn from shaking the DFT once, but it could cost them a tooth in the process.
