help with dog

Reply
i need help with my dog. She picks up all my ducks in water. when a duck falls in grass she will go where duck is and sniff right up to it but will not pick it up. Any advice on how i fix this would help.

This morning i shot bird that fell about 50 yards behind blind in grass. she jump out blind put nose down and ran right to a certain area and stayed there 2 or 3 minutes then came back with nothing. My buddy came with his dog and his dog took a little longer and wound up going to same spot my dog sniffed at for those 2 or 3 minutes and picked up a bird. This happens often and i cant firgure how to break her of it.

Set up same scenario at home and use force fetch to make her pick the bird up. If your dog is not conditioned to force fetch do so it's not difficult.
