In theory it would make sense to do so ,but it ain't the case in real life . A dog will one day refuse to go fetch and this will give you a Avenue to make the dog go . My experience with Force Fetch is it seems the dog respects you more at the end of it . This also develops and brings out that drive to go hard until I say stop then when I tell you go again . It heads off chewed up birds coming back ,to lite of hold on birds and it starts the process of Blind running . Because from the table you will line the dog up to a pile of bumpers and command it to fetch and over time the word will change from fetch to BACK ! There's no difference in training a Duck dog vs Training a Grand Hunting Retriever or National Field Trial Champ . If you leave one thing out it leaves a Hole in the Training that will come back and bite you . So you train them all the sameIf your dog will retrieve on command I don't see a point in force fetching. Not that I'm against it or anything. For instance there is a difference in getting on to fetch versus asking them to hold. If your dog is dropping bumpers or whatever retrieving tool your using before you ask them to give, then that's where putting them on a stand comes into play. Just remember every dog is different and being able to read your dog is the most valuable tool. When to apply pressure and when to let off is the key to learning.
