    I get asked all the time "How do I know when I'm finished" (with FF or really any skill). My reply is when the dog performs the functions instantly, uniformly, and predictably even when highly...

    No it isn't. Training for competition is more extensive, but no different. Particularly Basics; they are exactly the same. Do you not want your gundog to come when he's called? So does a trial dog...

    If they really know "sit" they know all that. If they've budged they've broken sit. In other words, if they're sitting they're staying. Well likely know when video emerges.

    Keep looking. Find a farm pond, or something like it, with a clean shore lint across the dam, and adapt yo that. Many a fine job has been done on swim-by on water that was far less than ideal.
