Interesting...how do they train forced retrieves?
When I had Drago's dam for a while I took her to a club to evaluate her bitework. Everyone said she was great and all, and one person was there that had known her from older days, and the breeder who had put the BH on her, and said that the trainer was brutal on her forced retreives yet she came through it ok. They mentioned this trainer's forced retrieves while rolling their eyes. Since then, I've wondered what the training is for it, but I've never bothered to research since I'm not interested in sport. Your post just reminded me of that conversation.
But I've sure seen other ways that people rationalize improper behavior for results for them..not dogs.
