Congratulations on the new pup
Only ever had one retriever and he right or wrong did most learning on his own as long as I took him with me and got familiar with the gun and water and retrieving the dummy bird.
He would fail every trial I am sure but would go get a goose for me which is all I wanted
My britts now that were trained to hunt were a different story and need a lot of work
As gary says I am sure there is s group up there you can join to help
All the best with the new dog

Congratulations on your new pup. Chessies are great dogs and love to hunt. I've had a couple myself and hunted with a few more. They take a little longer to train so dont try to rush it. They usually take about 3 years to get to know their job well. Used mine on upland and waterfowl. Good luck with the training.

The most amazing thing I have seen this dog do and I have no idea how she learned this is gridding when she didn’t see the dummy bird or bumper drop. She will go to where she last seen it, and if it’s not there she comes back so far then begins to go from one side to the other side until she finds it, that blew my mind.
We (I say we as my wife and I) are by no means dog trainers lol, but we have put a lot of time in with her. Our chessie walks 10 kms a day with my wife and when I get home it’s practice after we eat. I think chanelling her energy into what we want her to do has been key. I am loving the adventure and can’t wait to see what she will do in September!
