(I said this somewhere, maybe here, but don't remember) Talked to my wife about your advice. She just looked at me like an idiot, and said, "Why don't you just go across the street and put some decoys in the river, where you train her?" Well, there is that, honey........ So, today I took both dogs to the river, where there is a little backwater across from the house. She went with me as I put the dekes out. She just smelled them, and kept walking around, waiting for me to toss dummies. Walked back 15 yards and tossed. She could have cared less about the decoys. Never gave em a 2nd thought. So, crisis averted.
