My main hunting buddy is a field bred golden. She never went through formal training although she hunts well and I am very happy with her. The one problem I have is that she won't drop the pheasant when we get one. The last one I got we got into a little tug of war and that ain't good. In general she is soft mouthed, but just won't drop the bird. I realize it's my fault for not figuring this out ahead of time and for trying to pull the rooster away from her. Are there any positive reinforcement tips to get her to drop it? I know it's the same way when the kids throw a tennis ball for her to retrieve. Thanks for any advice!!
