Iím training my first dog and have really enjoyed it so far. I sent her to a pro for formal obedience and force fetch and have done the rest of the training myself. Iím following Fowl Dawgs now and will likely switch to a more comprehensive program soon. We are finishing up double T and should be ready to start swim-by in the next week. My problem is that I live in the city and my closest access to suitable water is over an hour away. I'm wondering, can swim-by be effectively taught over a series of weekends? Don't lash me for asking about timing, but any thoughts on how many training sessions it takes most dogs to get it? Also, can I move on to pattern blinds before completing swim-by, only teaching it on the weekends? My other option would be to send my dog back to the pro and knock it out, but I enjoy training and would prefer to do it myself. Thank you in advance for any advice. I've found the RTF to be an invaluable source of information!
