I have a 1.5 year old golden and she loves to retrieve anything. I have spent much time training her on "dummy" retrieves and she does great.
1st season this year and she does great marking and heading out to fallen bird but seems to not want to pick the bird up and return it. Seems liek she is unsure to grab it. Meanwhile at home she will retrieve birds the cat kills, rodents anything.
Worked with her back at boat launch with bagged duck and she seems to get better but hesitating and seemingly uncertain vs toys, balls and duck dummy.
Looking for some tips. Not sure if it is just all the new experiences etc?
Thanks for the help
