Cool ye beans chief. Spend ye time gettin this in sorted before thinking about another, last thing you want is 2 old dogs retiring at same age, I’d say make all your early mistakes with this dog you g

He's past his prime and aproching 9 but he can still catch a few 

Your only 10 mins from me give me a pm and I'll take you out with my little rabbit dog, I'll help you get yours going

As above tug of war, but if the pup doesn't hold onto dummy with a good grip don't let it have it, take it for another course and pull out of mouth if the grip is rubbish and tug of war on a good grip with some encouragement.

I probably done this to much with my hound because;

Down side;

My hound has a great ball retrieve (shit with rabbits) but the buggar grips in tight when I try to take it out his mouth usually have to say release a couple of times (not aggressive, just wants to play with it)

Rabbits get a death grip.

Upside;

Good strike.
