    Good Job Taylor! I like that video. Nugget really seems to enjoy that game and you’re doing a great job of working with your dog’s natural tendencies. Are you planning on taking him for some LARPing battles? It would be awesome to see Nugget in full battle armor running you a pile of arrows. Check out this YouTube video if you haven’t already. It’s one of my favorite breakdowns on how to teach the retrieve to hand. Usually its easier to back chain a complex behavior together but because you’ve already got the first 80% of the behavior down I think you could pretty easily just teach him to hand the arrow to you and chain that to the rest of the retrieve.

    Here is another good video showing some chaining action that may help if you haven’t seen it before.
