Re: Brittany Breeder in Eastern Iowa area

Cant help with a Brit, but have you looked into a Small Munsterlander. They do upland, waterfowl and can track deer. Not to mention they are great house and family dogs. Plus, I am betting if you show your wife a picture she will see they are cute as heck! http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a39/ladybo...

"Desire" has nothing to do with force fetching. It isnt Desire fetching. :lol:
Bumpers should be placed not thrown during Force Fetch.
Sounds to me like you havent instilled a sense of urgency with the dog. Maybe have taken the pressure off way to soon.

You are pretty close to understanding. So the dog is attached to the cable that runs above the table. How do you make the trolley so you can tighten it up on the cable to create tension so the dog has to pull harder to get the object. PUlly might work though.........Thanks
