    Great podcast Brad. This is another tool in my toolbox especially because I just posted a week ago that my goal for next season is to hunt my Britts together where I will alternate sending one out for the retrieve. You just gave me a plan that I will use when working them individually to keep them guessing when I will send them out for the retrieve. Not until they really understand how this new game is played will I put them out together. Thank you. One question. When the retrieving dog brings the bird back to me I am inclined to share it with the other dog for a job well done. What are your thoughts on this and would you do the same thing and if not please tell me how you would handle this situation. Thanks again.

    • Hello Tomdi. Everybody shares in the kill, always. Part of that whole trust thing. I usually have the lead dog go get it. After he has spent a few minutes with it, I take it back to the honoring dog. This is a great energy management tool too. Everybody learns to be patient instead of competitive.
