Iowan to Alaska

Hello, I am a 36 year old with two duck dogs, a 12 year old yellow lab that is stating her retirement this year and a 11 month old Chesapeake. I grew up in Iowa only hunting ducks on a small public marsh and turkey but now chase anything with a season. With my dogs I hunt mostly ducks but will case grouse and ptarmigan when I have a chance. I joined this forum to gain training tips because I do run into a few hang ups with my Chesapeake that I never had with my lab.
