    Default 3HC casting

    How long should you on average spend on 3HC AFTER there has been success in learning the hand casts? Is there a general rule so it is solid or should you move on right away.

    Time is never a factor. Attitude and good understanding is what you are after. It does not need to be robotic, as you are teaching a concept of simple signals. Most dogs really don't have a hard time if taught correctly.

    In TRT Lardy says about 80 percent correct casts but he comes back to it later to introduce indirect pressure.

    There is no logical reason to belabor it AFTER the dog knows the basic casts. Why would you? CC to sit-to-whistle, and start Mini-T.
