LOL I'm glad you enjoyed Gladys, she is a lot of fun. Not everyone appreciates their "enthusiasm".
That was such a fun test. I loved the mark in front of the corn field. I loved watching Gladys run through the corn.
We did train with one other person today, He wanted to practice HT marks b/c he's entered in JH next weekend.
I focused on line manners, bird manners, and trying to set Dee Dee up to break (didn't work).
They did ok. The other person let his dog switch and thought he did good on his HT marks.
I asked him didn't he want to stop it then felt bad for opening my big mouth b/c he has more experience and should know what he's doing.
I thought switching was cause for failure in HT. Off to check the rules, gonna need to know this stuff in a couple of weeks.
Addendum: so, after looking at the rules, it wasn't really switching since it was singles, it was more returning to an old fall. The rules don't clearly state it's not allowed for JH, although it's an indication of low perseverance. I wouldn't personally allow it, glad it happened today so I learned from it.
Dawn, Dee Dee (L), and Gladys (R)
