  1. Delivery to hand, part III

    Mike Stewart

    A desirable attribute of a good waterfowl retriever is the smooth delivery to hand of downed game which is neither mangled, crushed or partially plucked by our canine hunting pal. Both style and function dictate that retrievers not incessantly drop bumpers or birds on the return. A gundog with a sloppy mouth attempting to deal with a lightly pricked drake mallard or pheasant will interrupt the hunt with an unnecessary frolick possibly culminating in a lost bird. Developing a dog that consistently delivers to hand is largely a matter of conditioning
