"Hold" in Force Fetch

Cash is progressing well through Force Fetch. He has been at it about a week, and is solid on hold, and lunging to fetch the bumper. The next steps will be a progression through picking the bumper off the ground, walking fetch, and force to pile.

FYI - I am mostly going by the SmartFetch and SmartWorks method by Evan Graham and will be studying the Farmer/Aycock materials soon. We are not running very many serious marks right now. Most of our non-FF work consists of fun bumpers and some basic obedience work to help him maintain his confidence. For the first few days of FF I worked him on the table with the toe-hitch. Everything since then has been on the ground and I have been using the ear pinch.
