Everything you need for your Portuguese Water Dog!
Working Water Dog
This is the level where the dog begins retrieving articles off a boat. It is also the level where you can't control your dog between exercises with their harness. You'll need a reliable retrieve and some off leash control.
The 5 exercises are...
• drag the gear bag to the boat
• retrieve a dummy thrown 60' off the boat
• retrieve 3 articles off the boat. The dummy, float line, and buoy ball are thrown off the boat. The dog must retrieve them one at a time, without getting on the boat between the retrieves.
• The dog is transferred to a second boat and rowed away from the handler. On command the dog will jump into the water and retrieve a dummy that has been thrown between the two boats.
• The 10' floating line is placed in the water 60' from the boat. Without seeing it drop the dog must be directed to retrieve the line.
