How do you turn a puppy into a waterfowl retrieving machine? Keep practicing.
Chief, a 5-month-old chocolate lab, works on his technique in the following video.
You can tell Chief is a happy pup. He enjoys practicing retrieving ducks in the creek.
You can also tell the pup is learning well. He doesn’t chase after the dummy duck. He comes when called. Okay, he’s not perfect, but that’s why they’re out practicing.
Besides, as is evident at the beginning and ending of the video, Chief is still a puppy. He has the whole yard in which to chew, but he’d rather chew on his owner’s leg.
