Back from Vacation... found the river-fly-eating Cutts in Central Alberta... during the last three hours of our time up high! :bash: (If anyone wants to escape the heat and feed Canadian mosquitoes, I can steer you to the fly fishing!)

Anyway, I've made a series of "Introductory Leash Training" videos, and 5 of them are specific to the pups still available, so I'll post them here.

16 weeks now, price is still 800m/1000f, negotiable/trades, but generally goes up $100 per week that they are trained daily (starting this week.)

They're socializing, and conditioning beautifully, and individual training has started!




Turquois Collar - Smaller Female.

Happy, sweet, loving, and pretty fearless! Loves the water!


Pink Collar - Larger female

[youtube]https://youtu.be/scKo9r0iEQ8[/youtube]
Gentle, sweet, calm, smart...will need a gentle hand, but will REALLY thrive if she gets that!


Black Collar - Leia's boy

[youtube]https://youtu.be/M5pL1OFXRI4[/youtube]
Great trainability and intensity - Really good attitude!


Blue Collar - Bella's Boy

[youtube]https://youtu.be/_0qysP20pqw[/youtube]
Very sharp, excellent potential, attentive, he's a good one!


Red Collar - Bella's Boy

[youtube]https://youtu.be/lRhcEd7f-r4[/youtube]
Leader of the pack, listens, needs strong leadership, but the sky is the limit if he gets it. Super intelligence!


These babies are available right now, there is no "end date" on their conditioning, it's just lifestyle that YOU pick up from here.

I honestly believe earlier is better, because I think there's tremendous power in the bonding, and the longer I train, the more they'll have to break with me, and bond with you.

But if you can't train yourself for some reason, they will get sharper and sharper, so it's a trade off! After manners and obedience are firmly established, I'll be incorporating retriever field/test training into the mix as a natual advancement/transition.

I'll take deposits to hold, and charge for train/board as mentioned above.

Black collar boy is lying down on command! (Other three are as well, but with reminders and repetition. Black collar boy is doing it hands free while on the leash!)

They have gate respect, they know they’re supposed to keep all fours on the floor, they wait for food release, they’re comfortable with water (most of them swimming), they know “back (up/away)”, they’ve all got “sit” “come” “heel” 100% locked down, and black collar is the first finisher on “(lie) down!”

Three boys, and one girl available! 16weeks.

These 4 pups are still available. 17weeks. Started. Beginning some field related play.

Been out for a combat fetching session… not really to train anything, just to observe these 4 during their first exposure to the retrieve.

They watched their mom/grandma do a few, but when they were let out with her, she would back off and not perform. Bella does NOT compete!

Then we went out and just played… with communication. Got some consistent results. These results can give some great insights into these pups’ individual personality and training style:

Blue Collar Boy: Consistently finished the fetch. Don’t know if he “got it” for sure (I did praise the beans out of him every time) but he delivered all but one time. And I only picked up the pool attempt that they didn’t see, so only two he didn’t get, he finished the rest. He was combat fetching, and enjoying the competition, but it did seem like he understood what the game was!

Black Collar Boy: When they’d all rush out and attack the fetching dummy, I’d let them get it, and start moving with it, then I’d vocalize for their attention. Black collar boy would immediately break off the fight and come to heel. (I’d praise him for “come”ing to my call while the rest continued the combat fetch.) Absolutely the best ‘recall’ of the bunch, without question! Was definitely interested in the fetch, but he heard my voice and broke off.

Red Collar Boy: Happy and aggressive in the combat fetching. Made one of the retrieves. Recalled with black collar once. Loved the play session. Didn’t do any one thing consistently, but did everything at least once! None of the others did everything like he did.

Pink Collar Girl: Typically subordinated, but loved the play time. Got to the bird first or second every time, but then she’d let it go. Team-fetched with Blue once. Looked like she was going to finish a fetch once but one of her brothers took it away at the last minute. Very likely going to be like her grandma Bella, who is a great performer but refuses to compete.

Red Collar Boy is Home with a new Family!

Blue collar available.. he owned the combat fetching, hands down.

Black Collar available, he's usually the first to catch on to a new discipline.

Pink Collar Girl available, Sweet and gentle, happy and mild. Everybody who meets her falls in love with her!

Black Collar Boy has gone to his new home now too!

Sweetheart pink collar girl found another fan, mamma was in love with her, but daddy wanted black collar boy so she is still available.

Blue Collar Boy was fetching to heel and delivering to hand - - off leash - - this morning! He’s still available and I hope to get some video of fetch training with him before one of you guys snaps him up!

I'm surprised they haven't all been snapped up by now. Great litter of pups.

Well Weasel, I had 20, and the market is glutted with Labs, but...

Pink Collar Girl is Pending Pick-Up/Payment this evening.

Currently in a discussion concerning Blue Collar Boy, the fetching machine... He's still available, but.......

The ride may be over for now... I'm a little bummed, actually, I hope I didn't create any re-bonding issues... I love these puppies! I'm very proud of them!


(All my puppy owners, please keep in touch with me! I'd love to hear how the training process is going!

Thanks Everyone!)
