    Default First Water Retrieve

    Well Last night after I was out doing some field training with Ermey, I decided to stop at one of the local ponds mostly because I had seen a bunch of ducks on it earlier and wanted to see my dogs reaction to them. Well as luck has it the ducks were gone. So decided to see what the pup would do when I threw his bumper in the creek running between the two ponds (only six or eight inches deep mind you as i didnt want to go swimming for a bumper if the dog refused to retrieve). I threw the bumper upstream and gave the command fetch and in he went chasing it downstream. So now I can see his magnetism to water just doesnt apply to the bathtub, I throw it out a little further into the pond command fetch and away he went, made a good retrieve and his first true swim I was so proud of him, kinda the feeling when your children take there first steps.
