    Tying to implement some of the constructive suggestions I rec'd.
    I did a dry pop coming out of the holding blind to get the juices flowing. I should have had his lead off by then but forgot.
    M1 is 270 yds. I ran this mark quite a while ago but a whole lot closer. The goal was for him not to slide down the slope. He held his line pretty good. I had two stickmen out to simulate a flyer station somewhat.
    B1 is 150 yds down hill into trees and across a ditch with some underbrush. The goal was to line him up for the blind before taking the duck. He got into the trees and was having a hard time seeing me, I think.
    M2 was just a chip shot at 120 yds.
    B2 was only 120 yds but again the goal was to get his body lined up for the blind before taking the duck. I had to turn his head with moving my knee as while lined up correctly he was looking at the gun station.
    I ran another mark off camera at 185 yds as I had to move the line.

    Order M1, B1, M2, B2, M3

    As always constructive comments are welcome.

    Wayne besides your vids I don't know the training you do. So...
    I will only comment that when one trains alone it is very easy to get into the trap of trying to do everything in an hour. The result is your training can be out of balance. It's very tempting with one or two dogs to set up 3 or 4 remotes, pant a few blind piles and run the dogs on whatever.
    Anyway analyze what training your dog "needs" and work on that. Depending on how lessons go adapt or revise your plans.
    Traing alone the easiest way to get out of balance is running way to many blinds. The other is giving dog a steady diet of doubles, triples or quads peppered with blinds.
    Not saying you're out of balance but you're at that stage you need to really think about what you're doing and why.

    Wayne: looks much crisper and precise.

    A few comments:
    a) At the 2.00 mark, when you receive the dog (bird in mouth) and align him for the blind, the dog shuffles forward after you take the bird. I would correct and not let the dog leave the sit (sit means sit).
    b) On your first blind, I think the whistle is too loud. You want to use just enough whistle to get a response. That way, when you really blow, there is a difference. You can use volume and tone on your whistle to communicate with your dog, just as you use voice.
    c) At the 4.33 mark when you are aligning your dog for your second blind, his feet are close to you, but his body is leaning away. I would work on eliminating the lean.

    Thanks Ted and Breck, Ted you have a sharp eye. I saw the little step at 2:00 but never would have seen the lean at 4:33. I know how to correct 2:00 but what would you suggest for the 4:33 lean?

    I really do try to keep balance. Lots of singles. Probably multiple marks only once or twice a week. If it is really a windy day where marks are not so easy to control (wingers get blown over). I will do blinds only. But no more than once a week.

    I don't know what your command sequence is. For me, I would keep my feet close to dog, say "heel" and communicate that I wanted the dog tighter to me. It is something to work on in obedience or wagon wheel. Bill Petrovish has a command "close." When he wants Ammo tighter to his leg, he says "close" and she moves sideways. Pretty impressive. If you had a little heeling tab, you could put it on the collar and give a little pull as you said "heel, here, close, etc."

    Your dog has a pretty good command of basic marks and blinds. Why not try interrupted singles or doubles with Rowdy?

    By interrupted, you mean launch mark then run blind and then pick up mark?

    Yes. You could start with them wide apart like your marks in the video

    As always Wayne thanks. Good job. Really nice to see grass and even though you have the heavier coat on, I would love to be able to train in those conditions right now. Thanks to Breck and Ted for the excellent comments. Very helpful!!
