Sure all the chessie's that I have worked, have been very trainable, The last one was about a year ago, she was a ball of fire, 11/2 not alot of formal training, her only booger was the e-collar, because as a pup, the family had an doggie fence around the property, she got through and it fried her, the mom paniced, went and got the dog, and took her right back across, got her again. So it took a little more time with th ecollar association, and very very light collar. HAHAHA I had this bitch right in aboout 3 mo. got her ukc started title, 5 test, 5 passes. She was a very nice dog. Had a god foundation already started. Seems like most of the ones I have done, or have helped with a very hard headed, most trainers don't seem to know how to change and get away from the force, always had luck back stepping and going along better with attrition. How olds your dog and what have ya done?? How does she respond when your asking to do anything. Just give me something to go on, and we or I will get it figured out. OK? Thanks Jonesy Always remember, your dog is as good as you want it to be. Sure they are as good as labs, seen some better, lot of people don't run, so they are unfamilier with the breed, period. Patience is always a virtue.

Classic example of a pup in a situtation it shouldn't be in. She get's distracted because she is a puppy! quote: "...jumped out of the boat...". On command? Didn't sound like it. A friend of mine allowed his dog to do that as a pup. At about three his dog jumped at the wrong time and he cured it with a load from his 12 ga. Puppy enthusium that turned into a dangerious habit, his dog is gone!

If you want to take a puppy duck hunting with you, keep it tied in the boat and shoot your ducks with a camera! Let it be a puppy then train it as a dog, after the puppy nonsence is over with. She'll let you know somewhere between a year and a year and a half that she's ready. Your job is to understand what she's telling you.
