Once shes doing this try a SHORT recall. Start from the present though, NOT the close. Get her in present, dumbell in gob, "fantastic hold" stroke her head,"wait" two or three steps back, "come" walk back two steps & "sit" "Fantastic hold" brilliant girl etc, ,build up distance, again dont take it too much as this stage or she may start spitting it out. Then work up to a full recall holding dumbell.

Next build up to , leaving in recall, your dumbell in hand, place the dumbell half way between you, tell her to "HOLD" firmley & hopefully she will picvk it up on the way!!!!
I think I may try this with ben one of the labs at training, he gets so excited with retreive this may calm him down a bit.. TY
