All the videos I've seen are of flat throws. Don't forget to throw angle backs, down the shores, down treelines, etc.
Absolutely these are good things to train for, but remember this is a Junior stake that Phil & Gauge are entering. Not sure what AKC JH tests are like, but CKC judges generally remember that these are dogs (and handlers) that are usually new to the HT game and set JH tests accordingly.
If Phil keeps up his training he and Gauge will be headed to Senior tests in the not too distant future!
I understand, but angled throws are a basic concept, especially as a single on light cover. Usually, Junior throws are flat or very slightly AB.
Train for Master, test for Junior.....
Totally agree! As this is Phil's first experience with "line time" I just didn't want him to think he had missed a key training concept for running a JH event!
