Well, really it can be any Lab...yellow, choc, black. Doesn't matter does it?!!! Anyway I need more of your help folks. Loot is coming along (11 months next Tuesday the 23rd)fairly well; even spends the evenings in the living room with us fairly well behaved! Keeping up the training (at home)during the winter months and I think maybe a couple of private sessions with the trainer. Training sessions at the farm begin again in March. Anyway, part of my training of Loot is having him retrieve sticks, balls, the plastic "bird", etc. I've noticed that he "sees" the item and the direction when I throw an object but at times (as he's retrieving)he gets within 10 - 15 feet of the item and can't seem to "see" it until he gets within 2 or 3 feet. Is this something maybe others have experienced? Wondering if I should have a concern.
