I have a 17 mo. old black lab that I adopted and I was told he was a finished dog. I've been running some T-Drills with him and he keeps breaking either left or right when given the back command. He usually goes and fetches the first bumper and runs a straight line, but when being sent out a second time to go get a second bumper from the pile that is straight ahead he breaks either left or right. He usually stops on the whistle, but not all the time. Any training tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Sorry, for the late response, been really busy. First, thanks for your replies and advice, secondly I feel that all of you made a good point, especially Chris. I will be practicing with no side bumpers until he understands that back, means back. It's just a matter I guess of going back to basics.
