    There's a lot of clicker stuff I do differently (I have been very influenced by Scandinavian clicker training), but I don't think much of that is in this clip. What do you do differently?

    Hand Down on Marks & Blinds

    Somewhere in TRT, Lardy says that putting your hand down is a confirmation to the dog, you aren't giving him the line with your hand. Is this what you do? Is it different between marks and blinds?
