In the blog we write about  the book, clicker training and our thoughts about gun dog retrieving and field trial training.

I'm so very happy today and want to say congratulations and great job to Muiris and Polly in Australia, who I've been having regular private online training sessions with for the past few years. It's been a pleasure to follow their training and to see how their training has progressed.

Muiris wrote "Polly had her first novice retrieving trial today and she got first place; very happy; but as you know; there is a long way to go up the ladder.

Could not have done it without Retrieving for all occasions!!

We had 3 single marks 2 land 1 water with gun fire.

We also did 2x runs in the next class up and she completed these well but there are some serious dogs in this class.

Looking forward to the next one!"

How many dummies have you thrown since the challenge started? Have your dummy throwing skills improved?

I have been throwing 330 dummies – and there is definitely a difference in both height, length and precision! I’ve mainly been focusing on throwing high and releasing at the same “spot” every time. #dummythrowingchallenge

Dummy throwing challenge part 7: Rabbit throws
All game doesn’t fly high, challenge yourself by practicing rabbit throws!

Think of bowling! Release the dummy early and don’t swing it too high. Bending your knees, just like when bowling, might be helpful as well.
