Beans' Swim By Training

Do you love to hunt waterfowl? Ever wished you could send your dog on a long blind or handle your dog to a cripple? It all starts with the trained retrieve, or force fetch.

Most retrievers will be able to handle a bird you drop right into the pond in front of you with little or no training. It is when things don't go perfectly, that the great dogs shine. A great dog has lots of drive--and good training.

Here you see Beans, a 14 month old black Lab on her first "swim-by" exercise. This is coming off a winter break and much time spent drilling on "wagon wheels," "lining drills," and "T-patterns."

The swim-by is one of the last steps of the trained retrieve.
