    What I do when working on water sits is:
    I first identify the pile so the dog knows where it is (buckets or a blind stake can be useful).

    Honestly, if I'm an amateur, and have the opportunity to train with a pro I would be looking into drills. Drills are where you get to see the teamwork in full effect.

    I agree there needs to be that balance but when you have the manpower (I'll take Bird Boys over shooters and wingers any day) you have to do a set up, especially how little you train with the group.

    Force Fetch will help this issue but you don't have that tool yet I'm assuming. Something you can do is teach her to sit with a bumper in her mouth. Do it separate from a retrieve in it own session.

    It's great to hear of your pups progress! A question I have for you is, do you have someone throwing marks for your pup while you run him or are you using a machine/winger?

    Great question but there are many instances for a straight back cast. One that comes to mind for me is if you want to drive a young dog through a slot or over a point in water.
