    I've seen a water blind scrapped after a few dogs run and moved on to the fourth series with no water blind. I have also seen a derby run quite a few more than 4 series "to determine a winner."

    I would say that depends, what is the wind doing? Can the dog smell the marks on the way to the blind? Is the wind pushing the dog into the shoreline as it should with a shoreline blind? With dogs...

    Yeah I would just give her a little time off until she is ready for force fetch at this point. It should make her bumper starved going into force fetch and that isn't a bad thing. Also, if you ever...
