    DefaultA question for those into retrieving ducks

    Hi! I think I need some help. I am not a hunter, but it appears that Hershey Kisses would like to get into retrieving ducks. I am not sure where or how to start. Hershey Kisses is really a gentle docile Lab. As I think this picture illustrates.

    However, she has the capability to really focus intently on something if it has her interest, as this picture taking just a few seconds apart illistrates.

    The problem is that she really gets into this duck thing and I am not sure how to handle it. I don't think this is the way she is supposed to bring the ducks back. Is there something that I can do to teach her to be more gentle with them?

    This duck was less than a week old. It was a replacement for one that she had had since she was first brought home almost 11 months ago. I thought the duck's insides were supposed to stay inside for Mom or Dad to cook. ;D ;D

    ;D That is exactly what my girls do with a stuffed duck. The funny thing is, when out training.....they are very gentle with the "real thing" & never chew on them.

    I have the remenants of about 10 ducks in my house. He still has about 5 that are still intact but the squeakers have been destroyed. I bought him a new pheasant today, which he loved.

    Oh Hershey my chocolate friend, it took you almost a whole week to do that? That’s exactly why Dad wasn’t sure about the rope knot ball….a duck especially a plush one would be disemboweled within 24 hours, then I get to play with the “skin” for about a week before that disappears. How dare the human for taking the fun toys away!! ;D

    But HK has no upper incisors, she gets it done with her molars.
