Re: Making Retrieves
What do you mean work the hold in the front position? Like use this as a sepearte training manuver? Just have him hold the dumbell in the front until he get's it?
I'm new so I have been basically learning as I go, reading, researching and watching videos. My trainer and I have been doing the front's, heels, retrieves with a ball or tug, not the dumbell, I think maybe because it is heavier than the others?
I will work on just the hold in the front position.
When I straighten him up, I usually lure him in with my hands (or a treat). I can get him to straighten up with just bringing my hands towards myself (does this make sense?).
