I attached bird wings to the bumpers and began working with Doc on retrieving, and he did an excellent job particularly with searching. He had trouble taking a line on the bumpers but did a very nice job of working his way to them when he caught their scent.

They were simple, single retrieves of a couple hundred feet but as smart as the kid is, it’s not going to take him long to work up to more complex patterns.

    Good job Doc. I guess the neighbor’s Chessie is still coming around.

    • I usually chain him to our utility trailer and then give him a treat afterwards, but I hate to get on him since we’re really the only attention he gets. He’s a cute pup but looks more like a Rottweiler than a Chessie with his amputated tail.
