    You’ll know when it’s time to move from one to two when you see your dog slamming those singles. It locks in on them from the line and sprints wide open to the bird and sprints wide open back

    Especially on marked retrieves, I want my dogs bounding toward the bird always in the direction of the mark. They look happy, in fact thrilled, to be doing what they love the most in life!
