First day retrieving from the water today. She took to it well,  boat wakes didnít bother at all. Sheís starting to find the aggression/weíre not screwing around switch when weíre training & itís fun to watch.

Very cool👍 Thank you for sharing
How long did it take for her to jump right in like that?
Was it right away or did you have to ease into it?

I started off just tossing he dummy in ankle deep. The first toss she was too excited & couldnít stop fast enough so she fell into the deeper water where she had to swim. 2 more tosses I think 5-8í of shore and then she was all about it. Had some throws about 40í from shore & she brought them all back. At the end of the hour session she was jumping off the dock to fetch the dummy.

Had Haley out fir her first session of being broken in to gunfire today. We walked around tossing her training dummy with her on a 30í check cord. When I tossed the dummy Iíd shoot the training pistol. Did the first couple shots inside the bird pocket of my hunting vest to muffle it & got pretty quickly to shooting it almost right over her. She never seemed to even notice the shots, so I think the session went well. I felt kind of bad though, because I forgot her biscuits for the reward,

Today we introduced Haley to live birds for the first time. Sheíll be 8 months next week. We went to a hunting preserve and used chukars & a bird launcher. We started off with a training bumper in the launcher hid in some tall grass. When she would get close to the launcher weíd set it off to kick up the bumper & shoot the starter pistol. After about 1/2 hour of that we moved on to chukars & shotguns. She found that pretty exciting & was super aggressive about getting after them when she saw them. One bird didnít fly so she chased it down, pounced on it & brought it straight back. She retrieved all of them to hand. I was pretty pleased, I donít think I could have expected as good a showing as she gave this morning.
