    This. Does anybody else's dog come back to the line and then back himself into heel pointed at the next bird? Mine has always done that and it seems to work for us.

    X3. Fishduck taught me how to help a dog through some drag back issues with a thrown white bucket. It's an all-purpose dog training tool. Can also be turned over and used as a seat if necessary.
