I'm training a 3 year old Labrador Pointing Retriever to be my service dog. I've years of experience training and working dogs, but I've never trained any breed of dog to perform tasks it wasn't bred for.
How do I train her to retrieve something that's not fowl or her toys? And, yep... She's a Labrador Pointing Retriever. One generation removed from an international Champion kennel in Colorado. You should see her U point.
I've had a Lab before... when this country gal could walk the fields to hunt.
