> > > I have a 9 mo.old pl she is gone for 3 mo's for handeling training.The pro trainer is having a problem she is over eager and hyper .I never had this problem while training at home.She has only been gone for three weeks.She has done super in the field both pointing and retrieving.Could this be caused from being in the kennel all the time except for the training time? She lives in the house while at home. Could be change of environment or change of diet,

She is on the same food eukanuba puppy I take it up and supply the food.The trainer takes care of the feeding.At first she was to active now he saying she is quitting after 5 or 6 retrieves.
> I think the trainer has a problem .She loves to retrieve and pays attention to everything I ask of her.She has been away for six weeks now and I was up to see her on Friday the 5th of April
> I was not very happy with her progress at the 6 week mark.He is telling me he can't get enough reps on the casting.He dose not believe in force fetching which I thought would in order before a handeling and blind retrieve training.When I went and worked with her she gave me about 30 retrieves ,he said if she would work like that with him he would complete in 6 more weeks as he thought at the begining.I don't know much about the method these pro trainers use but when she returns from a retrieve if she dose not sit on the whistle the very second she hears it she gets the side of his foot in the chest.Is that normal?Also he dose not believe in using the E coller.I wonder if he is using too much presure for her age.He just started using a few quail to motivate her,none was needed when I was up to work with her.Thanks for any comments thoughts on the training.
