Hi all this is my first post so I hope somebody can help me as I am at a loss. I have a 11 month old Springer bitch who up till now was doing extremely well. She has been retrieving dummies since she was 6 months with no paticular problems. I then moved on to fixing duck wings to the dummy and got her to retrive and lose the dummy. I have tried know on two occasions to get her to retrive cold dead game but on both ocasions she has run out picked up the game and mouthed it and refused to hand the game over until I tell her in quite strong terms to lose. On examining the birds after, there is damage to them and this is not exceptable by me or any other like minded person on the shooting field. I have trained two other dogs and not come accross this problem before All retrieving has now been stopped until I can try and find some answers and suggestions. Can anybody help?
