Too old to Force Fetch???

4 posts in this topic

When is it too old to Force Fetch a dog. I did not do it at an early age...he is now not holding the bird or bringing it all the way to me. He is 1.5 years old and I am thinking about starting the Force Fetch. He is a Lab.

Never to old to train a dog to do anything. The one drawback is that many times you have to undo the negative aspect that you are going to train for before or during the training. In the context of forcing a dog, that is one of the primary reasons for this training, so it is not an issue.

Read a fair amount on forcing and have it down in your head before you begin. Once you start the process you need to see it through till the end.

Good Luck!

Ken

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
