Retrieving basics

Elettra with bumper

Elettra’s last retrieve was a couple of years ago in sub-zero temperature so I went all the way back to square one with her retriever training.

I teased her with a bumper that had a wing attached to it, and tossed it a couple of times but she wasn’t too interested. Maybe that was too basic and she was insulted, I don’t know.

However she was happy to play fetch with the bird wing by itself, which we did for a little while.

  2. I think you’re right, one of my pigeons wasn’t fast enough the last time we trained and when she got hold of it, she had everything but retrieving on her mind!
