On the first toss your pup runs full speed to the dummy, picks it up, starts running back for you, then drops it in favor of a clump of marsh grass that she attacks as if it were a peanut butter and bologna burger. No problem, you get her attention again and toss another dummy. This time it's worse. She makes it half way there and turns her attention back to that marsh grass clump. Okay, you know what to do. A short toss. A real short toss away from the distraction. She heads for it with the speed of a turtle with diaper rash, loafs back, and then trots off in search of better action before you correct her with the check cord.
