    Plus, training dogs is fun and rewarding in and of itself. If you think about it, you don't even need a dog if all you want to do is hunt.

    You think the swimby activity - exiting at a few locations- will induce the pup to seek to exit at these locations when you run the channel blind?

    Maybe, but your dog will be handling at this...

    One issue is that the dog will begin to think all marks are within the range of your throw. But this is related to not seeing enough real marks and not so much whether you throw or don't throw fun...

    I do this (throw fun bumpers) every day. Some throws I require steadiness, some I do not. I train some in evenings, but almost all real marks come on weekends.

    And I'd say walking or running on a...

    It's not too late to understand what eye contact means. IMO you are not just training a behavior to look at a hotdog or follow a bouncing ball but rather trying to build the confidence and bring out...

    This is it.

    I want a dog that is steady by habit and not because I was able to trick him into moving so that I could clobber him to teach him a lesson.

    Primary thing I look for in picking out a 7-8 week old puppy is eye contact. It says something about the pup even before any "training" takes place.

    I've done pattern blinds before swim-by when the water is too cold.
    Also, I line across the swim-by pond any chance I get after I've forced to pile. This way when I get ready to do swim-by I don't...
