Retrieving Practice

I've been working really hard on getting Mia to swim and it's paid off - not only is she doing water retrieves but she's really starting to like it.  When I first started trying to get her to swim, she wanted nothing to do with the water and if I pushed her out, she turned right back around and swam to shore.  I worked a lot on building her retrieve drive and that has helped tremendously.  The more she goes in, the more she likes it and the less scary it is.  Hopefully, we can get our Novice Retrieving Dog Rating (NRD) this fall.  I am so proud of Mia and how far she's come.  LOVE her!!:)
