<br> I have a 2yr. old Lab that loves to retrieve, but getting him to bring back a training dummy to hand is a real challenge.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;On water retrieves he will generally drop the dummy as soon as he gets out of the water while he is shaking off the water.<br> <br> What suggestions do people have in getting him to retrieve to hand.<br> <br> thanks!<br>

What I did with my pooch when he started doing that was to blow the come command on the whistle just before he left the water.&nbsp; That caused him to kick it into high gear to me with the dummy still in his mouth.<br> <br> Before that, he sometimes would dally along side the edge of the bank, playing with the dummy, as he realized I was going to take it from him when he got out of the water.&nbsp; Staying in the water gave him additional time to play with it.&nbsp; Blowing the come command with the whistle helped stop that too.<br>
