::sigh:: Riot and I (but mainly me) have hit a small wall with our field training. We are working on FTP and I guess I'm just not exactly sure what it is supposed to look like. I mean, he books it to the pile, gaining momentum as he goes. He takes the back cast in the correction direction about 95% of the time. He looks out from my side on "dead bird" and lines well. There is very little flair, if any at all. And he doesn't hesitate when I nick him, just keeps heading to the pile. I just don't feel like we are done. I think I need to have someone look at what we are doing.

So this week, I am just going to try to work on some obedience, throw some marks for him, play around.

Fingers crossed that it doesn't rain tomorrow...

Good....I think! He is really grabbing at the bumper upon command and is requiring less and less of a pinch. At this point, I am standing behind him because his trick is to throw his head back, looking behind me (while I am at his side). I've found if I start out straddling him he can only throw his head back so far. However, this is becoming less of an issue since he is really going for the bumper on command.

I don't know, sounds like you're doing really well! Maybe you're at a plateau, not a wall You may be done with FTP and ready to move on to baseball/single T. Do you have another lesson scheduled with the Dahl's?

Marie, it sounds to me like you're doing so well you can't help but wonder "is this all there is to it?"
I hope your pro can help you, but it sure sounds like you're ready to move on.

I met up with a friend to do some training today. She was 25 minutes late, so while I was waiting on her I worked with Flip. We did some heeling, signals, and ARTICLES. Once she got there, I helped her work with her dogs (she's a novice A person), then we did some stays with Flip between two of her dogs with Flip's new stay anchor.

Then I set Flip up in a stay while I had her walk her border collie very closely around Flip. At one point I had her stop her dog with its rear end right in front of Flip's face. Flip was a very good boy, every time the border collie got around Flip's face, he would turn his head away.

I hope to do some go outs later and another set of articles tonight.

At some point I am going to set-up a 300 or 400 pattern blind this week and start Scout on it. We'll start at about 100 yards and back up to the full length. She has never run that far. While part of me thinks that is really really long I think I can see the value and why he wants me to do it. I think the idea is that if she gets used to running these long blinds she'll run further on cold blinds before breaking down.

Also, we will revisit the single t this week. The pro wanted me to throw bumpers to the side while still sending her back. Thus causing suction to the side piles and making her work harder to go to the back pile.
