Thread: Single T

  1. #1

    Default Single T

    Hi,

    I have been working with my 1yr 2 month old lab on T work on and off for about 1 month. He has alsignals and signals/casting pretty much down.

    However when castes to the overs he seems to run towards me and then slowly veer off to the pile. Whi is he doing this.

    Another question, am I suppose to be forcing t on the overs with a NICK? I have not been using any force in overs just to the back pile!

    Thanks in advance..

    That depends in part on what program you're following.

    Smartworks by Evan Graham forces on overs while Total Retriever Training by Mike Lardy does not. Are you following a program? Seems to me you may have skipped the mini T. Move up very close to the junction (pitchers mound) say 10 yds. Work at this distance for a day or two and then back up. This problem should go away.

    There were some typos but I think I read that he "pretty much" understands casting. This comment concerns me. What does this mean?

    I don't personally force on overs. Move up, handle.....

    Nothing to be concerned about, I just mean that 99% of the time he takes correct hand signal.

    I will try moving closer as stated and I will throw a bumper to the over pile before I send him out to that pile to remind him of exact location..

    Also mini T has been completed successfully.

    Well, I see one thing now...you don't have to have 100% perfection here and matter of fact, you can kill attitude quick by trying.

    Mr.Evan, No sir I am not at this time due to lack of funding at the moment. I am trying hard to do it right by what I read and gather here and there.
