There were some pro ran dogs that had trouble with that one. I ran a dog I just got in last week as test dog on Sunday. He had never been to a HT and smacked all 4 marks. Real nice choco dog.

Always makes folks happy. What was up with the high percentage of Fails?


Amazing. Hate to see folks fail but I do like to see a junior pass mean something. Not getting wet or avoiding entry is a big demerit related to an AKC/HRC pass of even junior.

Glad to see yours got in the drink! :lol3: :thumbsup:

hip pocket concept started with throwing it as singles in the order you would pick it up had to handle on the long bird but thought she understood what i was asking so reloaded and threw it as a double and she smoked it. video to come when it finishes loading to youtube. then moved a little and did a lining drill that joe told me about this weekend (not wagon wheel) and trying to get her and i on the same page since i discover (was told) she didn't like me all on top of her but she did well but it was hot and she was starting to really slow down so called it a day.

here is the video

had a video of today but I'm not posting it! the handler was a complete and under retard today.

but mom and pop with a turn to the right for the go bird through a small bit of water. ran as singles first then later as a triple. also word of advise make sure the collar is turned on also with young dogs don't run a mark close with a hot blind! two big things i learned today.

I don't like to run them as singles then re-run them as multiples.( I used to do it every now and then until told by a very reputable FT pro not to do it) Just move the setup and repeat the concept. Can cause dog to want to return to old falls when they can't find a mark. If your dog is having trouble with multiples run singles with bird in mouth to get the mechanics going then repeat the same concept as a double and later triple. Just my opinion.

nothing big today couple of land singles and a water blind but the highlight and low point of the day was going to the vet for the yearly checkup cost way to much but the good part was the vet has a large piece of land that i have to go look at but most likely will be using so basically more training ground and hopefully i can start to push belle out a little farther on her marks and blinds

at 12 weeks she got to have a wander around without lead on...sniff around strange outdoors, wander through big puddles, well ran actually just short of swimming depth..learn t that the bossman looks at the great smelling wooden boxes that make loud noises (ferret traps) and puts good meat into them that she not allowed to eat :huh:
all in all just more environment enrichment :thumbsup:

That's the standard set-up I see on training grounds! :yes:

We'd just started the drill as working on a lot of angle entries, blind factors, cheaty stuff....and the dog takes to it all pretty well. More concerned with the bird than taking the easy way out (which is nice).

But as one would expect - hitting bales at 75 yards to and fro went fast. I removed one bale last night and increased the distance to about 150 and the first attempt was a cheat. :lol3: Early next week will angle 3 bales into cover on the backside. Still haven't gotten around to competent handling skills so those will begin as marks not blinds.
