Teaching a well-bred retriever to bring back bumpers is kid's stuff. Training him to be steady and obedient under extreme temptation is not. If you are aiming for exemplary behavior then the fundamental building blocks have to be firmly in place. Your dog must walk perfectly to heel regardless of outside influences. Sit silently while guns fire and dogs run around him. He should recall immediately when he hears the whistle. In short, his basic obedience must be bomb proof.Story | Conversation | February 23, 2005
