    Lab sort of problems

    So I have this new 3 year lab Bitch Black smallish frame good breeding apparently Shes from Croftsway sold to buyers who thought she would not require attention just lie on the deck and be cool spayed and signed agreement not to leave nz or go to dog shows wtf.
    So her three years shes had two extend eye opening ops plus spent a heap of time in doggie jail IE the odd two to three months at the kennels in a row

    Anyway shes clever. One afternoon shes shaking hands high five in rolling over and behaving very well.
    Taken walking every night and behaves well. Shes my first female dog.
    My problem is she finds a dead bird a 20 year old skeleton its all over
    Will not come back ignores the whistle that without the food interference has been so awesome

    She is gentle as and an awesome dog. I m lacking in trying to tie her to me
    My 14 year old lab I just look at him and hes beside me Click my tongue hes running at me
    Any help be welcome no interference I can stop walking hide and she comes to find me so quickly its not funny
    Hid in a barn she got 250 mtrs ahead and just sat Barely poked my head out and shes doing 100 mph coming back

    She is so clever I need some tips. If she doesnt come back do what .? Ifs shes been naughty and then finally lets you catch up do what

    Any ideas or help welcome. Shes a lovely girl

    you said dead bird or 20 year old skeleton...me thinks you have a GREAT ASSET in the making....she already "birdie" and prooving she has a "nose" two things plurry hard to train in......much better to have then in spades and work out how to work with them.
    she wont come back.......dont let her go.
    trick with long line is DONT put it in your hands...let it drag and then innocently stand on it. dog comes to screaming halt...turns around and thinks" how the begesus did he do that??...
    dont do it too often or she will twig.
    been naughty and finnaly lets you catch up......walk her down,and keep going and going and going,give shake up when get a hold of her then take back to where you started and carry on. basically dont let bad behaviour be its own reward is my thoughts on it.
    if nightly walkies is where issue pops up...you COULD try old shepherds trick and tie both dogs together...she cant bugger off unless she can drag the old boy along too,he will get exercise but wont let her drag him off and you tell him to sit and she has no choice but to stop.
    hope that helps....Ruff where are you bud????

    I’m sure that there is an answer to this VC. It won’t be @Gibo one though

    Im am no dog trainer by any stretch but I figure there is no point in punishing later that day/they will just wonder why you are being a prick.
    Immediate reward or punishment they understand what they are doing is right or wrong.

    Sounds like she is self-hunting. What do you do when she takes off? do you repeatedly call her name/whistle? do you run off after her? Also do you hunt with her or plan to hunt with her? If so what sort of hunting? Will you be running her just as a retriever, or will she hunt and you shoot over her?

    She will be retrieving from ponds etc. when she gets wind of food there’s no calling her back Tried whistling her and calling no way she’s not interested I don’t run after her. She won’t get shot over as it’s all mai mai shooting and we stop shooting to do a retreive Be ducks only

    wonder if she was starved at some stage????
    sure labs have huge food drive but.......
    had a lab/gsp that was starved along with her litter mates and she always was demon for food,still made plurry awesome hunting dog but feeding time was all business.
    ok,you are the boss....you control the food.... dog does what she told and gets food,really great way to get sit down pat fast. just like an ambo you dont run,you "walk with purpose" and keep at it till she stops.dogs hate being "walked down"
    old advice but still good is to get dog retrieving mad....play the game till ya arm falls off..it will pay off come duck day..... for me,the retrieve MUST be to my hand....drop it and its ignored,kick it away and keep hand out,when it placed in hand,accept and rethrow it.
    a rock solid sit can be a "get out of jail " card. if dog STARTS to go off solo hunting etc whack the sit on her and get her back into line/control.
    Ruff where are you????
