The DB thing stinks. I"m a horrible thrower. Miserable.

My TD is super pissed about that one. She's a teeny lady with RA and relied on a step back and wind up to be able to throw that. She made what I think is a good point--it takes more "skill" to have your dog remain in a sit, step back to wind up and throw than it does to stand completely still!

I agree! I haven't trailed yet, but that was the hardest part of reaching Bison the retreive

I hate that too. I'm sure I can practice the throw how they want it now, but all along I'd been taking a step with Nikon. Pan just learned his retrieve this week and already I'm having to catch myself when I throw.

If throwing was the hardest part of teaching the retrieve, I'd be counting my blessings!
I haven't yet had too much problem throwing, but haven't had an A-frame to practice with.

Well how far do they expected you too toss the dumbbell without taking a step?
