My Spaniel of 10 months is not intrested in retrieving!!
hi i have a 10 month old spaniel called molly. i have trained her from day one and she excells in everything i ask of her, somedays the recall could be better if distracted by a running rabbit or a good smell in a hedge, but that will sharpen up in time. The problem i am having with molly is she is not intrested in retrieving anything unless its a dead bird. which i no sounds strange but ever since she was 8 weeks old she has never been intrested in balls or small dummies, and the game of fetch has always been a game where i throw a ball and i have to go fetch it lol. it was only the other week when i had a dead wood pidgeon she wanted to fetch it. Unfortunatly i dont have many wood pidgeons to use for training.... what can i do to get molly to practice the retrieve and show intrest without using a real bird.
