Enthusiasm towards game: Free search: Retrieves game with leisurely but confident style. Slows his pace down a bit and circles a bit while returning.
Retrieving instinct: Marking: Shows nice enthusiasm in retrieving and knows what he’s doing. Free search: Retrieves gladly. He knows what he’s supposed to do but he doesn’t want to return the game directly to the handler. Water work: Is interested and enjoys the task.
Water work (dummies): Dog likes to swim. Is interested and enjoys the task. Works quickly. Returns the dummy close to the handler. Works straightforwardly in the water. Good retrieving grip.
Marking (with dummies): He stays in the area despite old smells. He picks up dummies right away when he finds them. He uses his nose very well in the area. Reaction to shot: normal. He should be more willing to return with the dummies.
Tracking / self confidence: Uses ground scent first and changes to air scent, took the rabbit, dropped it on the way. Second try, used ground scent all the way to the end of the track. Returns directly to the handler after being pressured, had a deep grip.
Other: Free search: Works with leisurely but confident style. Uses air scent very well. Co-operation causes some problems.
