Help, advice wanted please. I have a 7 month Lab who has just started stage 1 gun dog training and is doing well. I have hit a snag and am unsure how to deal with it. On a retrieve with his 1lb dummy he sends off eagerly, picks up, turns round to face me and refuses to recall. How should I handle this? I have tried great encouragement, leaping about, arm waving, turning my back and walking away, nothing works. All I can do it ask for a sit and stay, which he will do, walk up to him and take the dummy, praise him for giving it and try again. I keep the sessions short, 2 attempts as a reward after a bit if heel work, recalls etc. What am I doing wrong. It seems as if he wants me to chase him which I won't do, I have made a corridor for the exercise so he can't bolt out but am keen to get this right so any help appreciated, thanks.
