Dash’s First Water Retrieve

I must say this took me completely by surprise.  I’d been doing some training in the garden with all the dogs and she had done a small fun land retrieve quite nicely.  I thought I’d toss a dummy into the pool for fun – not particularly watching to see where it went.  She threw herself into the water and swam out to retrieve it.  You can see that the horrid old creepy crawley is in the way, but it doesn’t worry her a bit.  She’s nice and fast and has a really nice strong drive to retrieve.

Now that I’ve established that she’s a retrieving fool, she’ll only get a couple a week.  Most of our time will be spent working on self-control and obedience.  It’s quite difficult to maintain perspective when one has a dog with this kind of natural ability and drive.
