Also, you need to send from a front finish remote sit AT LEAST as often as you send from your side.
And it doesn't look like you have started forcing yet. Maybe that's because you just started lining to the pile.
Just because she is running to the pile, doesn't mean that you don't need to force.
You NEED to force. It's force-to-pile. Not forget-the-pressure.
And I wouldn't be using the hand as a cue yet. When the pressure starts to build up, (and it will) that hand is going to become a cue to start bugging. Wait until you are done with TT, and well into pattern blinds before you start dropping the hand before sending.
Yes she was wearing an e-collar and it was 1 finger under tight maybe it came down not sure but I thought I had it pretty high. Tonight I did not do any front finish remote sits but I usually do and then either give her a left or right back.
How will I know when I am forcing to the pile? I mean I will give her a nick and back command when we are just doing the drill and nothing else about every third or forth time she is sent. I have only been sending her to a pile no larger than 12 bumpers, should I go with more and build pressure and then add force? Pull the pile in to say 70 yards and work more reps? I can stop using the hand that is not a problem and will wait until I am further along.
No I am not really following any program at the moment I am using the tri tronics book for drills and working on them.
Thanks for the input
