I would still love to try to get a WC on Emilu. She is a very good retriever, and loves water retrieves. I need to know exactly what they do at the trial - do they use live ducks, dummies? Emilu is used to me throwing something and then she goes after it. How do they do this at a trial. Gun shot, something falls from the sky? Gunshot, something is tossed from out in the field? I need to work her like the trial would be or she'll probably just look at me like "what? - you gonna toss something or what?" "and a bird? - I'm supposed to leave the neighbors guinea hens alone and you want me to go pick up that bird?"
