Retrieving points

Postby John L » Wed Mar 15, 2006 10:36 pm

If a NSTRA dog runs to a downed bird picks it up comes back part way stops & drops the bird, what score is the dog given? 0-100 or a partial score? :?:

had just this happen to me at a trial
dog pointed held well i walked in flushed the bird let it fly out good
downed the bird dog rushed to retrieve picked it up and rush back to with-in 10 ft. then he dropped the bird and refused to pick it back up!
after a little time i realized he was not going to pick it back up so i walked over and picked it up. O pts.
the judge told me after the brace that you may take ONE step in the direction of the retrieve but no more. He also told me if i would have got that fetch i would have won ended up in 2nd.
more force fetch training for next time!!!
