    Would likely be the issues after the tests. Try looking at the HRC web sit. I found judges drawings of the 2013 spring grand tests. One had videos of the tests. Maybe someone can tell you how to get...

    Stand alones are simply marks where you sit the dog at the line and walk out in the field (standing alone), throw the mark and send the dog. Start short to get the mechanics down, and make sure your...

    You appear to be a bit trigger happy. You don't need to nick the dog every time you give a command.

    Why would you not just require the dog to come all the way in to begin with? It makes no sense to me to just stand there, allow the dog to go to the wrong place, then correct them for being there. ...

    Can you find multiple examples of people using this program who have trained multiple dogs to a level you are impressed with?

    If not, you need to stop and find a different program.
