I know she is only 5 mo but she is so fast in everything she does, that I feel that i am not passing my message correctly.
So, How do I tech my dog to speed up the retrieve?
Thanks Holland - I get a very good speed at this scenario. But I also want to combine it with the "GO" command from a static posture (IPO style) - then I get what you saw...
You have to give it time, but at some point you want to put some drive in the dumbbell..
Some things to consider: restraint and frustration, turn it into play object (could cause issues with chewing even if dogs is trained to hold), tease with it, etc.
Do you have a trainer you are working with? What did they recommend?
You can put drive now if needed, and once the go, pickup, and return are speedy enough to your liking you can start to put obedience. If you use restraint, you can retrain dog even from basic position and send out while letting go of collar at same time...
