    It means she is 6 month old now and our duck season starts in about 5 weeks.

    I am not going to FF. But yes I am confidant in what I demand as far as basics.

    So you're gonna take a 6 month old pup, without any real skills, and throw her into a hunting situation??? Dumb, just plain dumb. Many dogs have been ruined by what you say you're gonna do.

    With all due respect; you're clueless as to what we're defining as basics. Basics are the foundation of the training program. You dog doesn't have any of them AT ALL!!!

    With all due respect; thank you for forcing your opinion down my throat. What I do works for me. I shoot a duck my dog retrieves it. I don't need it to do anything else.

    Please tell me what else I need to do in life!

    It's not an opinion; it's a fact.

    Bring a lot of rocks with you.

    A good deal worse than no dog at all regards.

    A month ago, your dog was dropping the bumper --- now magically all is well....................... until your dog brings you a slightly wounded duck, drops it and you watch it fly away.

    Thank you all for your advise. I feel as if "I" do something "you all" don't do then my training is pointless. Without knowing the style/situations I hunt in and what I would need my dog to do continuing this discussion is pointless. I DONT want a "robot" dog. I have always attested if the dog doesn't seem like its having fun I'm not having fun. Thank you for making feel welcomed and ostracized in the training forum. Have a great day and safe hunting season!

    In your OP, you said : "Then she goes to grab it again and wants to "play with it! any ideas."
    Then you get answers to your question by excellent trainers who have superb gun dogs (not robots) and your feelings are hurt and you feel ostracized.
    If you don't want opinions then why ask the question to begin with ?
