There aren’t many things that are more difficult for a young dog than making a retrieve on solid ice.
You picked them out over the rest of the litter, brought them home, and made them a part of the family.
You also knew that your beautiful pup would be a working dog and began the training process in earnest.
When you get to see your pup grow up and make a tough retrieve like this, it was all worth it.
I’ve got to believe that these hunters knew the ice was safe enough to let their prized lab run out onto.
Be that as it may, anyone, including your dog, can slip and injure themselves and ice has a way of breaking when you least expect it– so caution should be taken.
Other than that, it was great to watch a young dog get a mouthful of goose and strain to bring it back!
