Thanks. That is exactly how DZ started us on it too.

Have you seen Lou Jollyman's video series on training the clicker retrieve? SUPER! (IMO).
I have not watched that one yet. I will definitely look into it though. I build it up via the clicker but I have trouble handling the dumbbell and the clicker at the same time so I'm using the voice to mark instead.

Thanks for the link.
