Did you ever say out loud?? "I hope I can get a year or two more out of "insert dog's name here" If so there's your answer. He is afraid he won't be able to go along any more if he doesn't perform.

Yes I hope to a few more years out of him I don't hunt him too hard.He is not in to bad of shape.We got a 2 year old chessie female about a year ago.She is way not like a lab at all.That might be why he hunting like he is.Not sure

They say it takes some dogs between 100 - 200 birds shot over a dog before it "gets it"

I'm sure its not true for all dogs and I am not judging your hunting ability but I know my brothers chessie just "got it" this year and he is 4.
