Ok, guys -- my just-over-one-year-old gsp is developing a horrible habit. He started doing it about two weeks ago for some reason (maybe got scratched by bird on retrieve). He is kill-biting the birds -- I can hear the quail's breastbone breaking!!! I have heard several people I know tell me the simplist solution is to force-fetch them. Is this the case? If so, can you guys offer suggestions as to who/what program works best? Rommel, my dog, is very mild-mannered (sometimes timid). Anyway, any information you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, guys.
