If I throw one dummy to the left and another to the right, which one should I send the dog for first?
Never forget, a dog will always want to go for the last retrieve you threw as it’s the one that is fresh in its mind. So always send it for the first!
However, as things progress you will need to mix up the sequence so that the dog doesn’t pre-empt which direction he/she is going to be sent. Watch it closely.
If the dog looks at one of the dummies, send it for the other. If it keeps its eyes on me after the initial throw then the choice is mine.
One final thing: don’t always throw the first dummy to the same side, and don’t overdo the exercise.
Mix up the direction you throw the dummy
