When your dog chases a family of ducks with babies round and round the pond, you realise that you really have to step up the recall training. I was soooo pissed off with her. Didn't punish her when she came eventually but I haven't been able to bring myself to give her any attention since. I know it's not the dog's fault, but I find situations like these highly frustrating.
I will finally get that long lead and hope that there will be just as many parrots at the walking spot tomorrow as there were today so we can do some proper training! Any type of bird in sight and she develops selective deafness. It's the highest distraction for her that I know of and so far the only one in which the recall doesn't work.
I hope the baby ducks are ok. Eventually they swam away from their distressed parents and hid in the reeds.
