I didn't and she didn't.
I was never able to totally eliminate her excursions to the other side. She probably did it more when she got older than when she was young...I have no idea whether it was trainer (me) induced (probably) or just something that she decided to start doing on her own.
In attempts to fix it, I would regularly give her long, flat throws to help keep her on the good side of the gunner, but that didn't cure her.
One important note, that gal had fierce independent streak, which regularly showed up at trials.

I'm convinced there's more to it, in the psyche of the dog, in some instances, because I've seen very good marking dogs do this habitually.
Ah....that makes sense. So far, Winx is pretty good at hunting where she's supposed to. We are still very new to it though.
