15 month old BLF has started having some issues on her over cast in the last 2 weeks, She will take the cast for about 5 to 10 yards then she self employees herself and basically does what she wants, which is mostly to turn and dig back, or dig back and start hunting.
I have used attrition, and started doing walk behinds to close the distance, but seems were getting nowhere! Basically she takes my cast, and it seems she thinks she got in her head she knows more than me and does what she wants !
I may add I have used indirect pressure on the last 2 blinds I have ran, and that did not seem to help much !
I know everyone will ask so YES she has been through a established program, has been force fetched, been through T and TT, Pattern blinds, Blind drills, and we are working on diversion drills, and working on de-cheating no no drills and waiting patiently for the water to warm to complete swim-by
I do walking baseball with her a minimum of 2 days a week, and work in 8 bumper wagon wheel casting drill after running the wagon wheel from center a couple times a week as well, I have no issues during drill work, and will take any cast I give her with bumper in mouth ! This issue is showing up during our diversion drills and blind drills ! It's not that she is taking a line to the old falls, she just refuses to carry out her cast that's giving !
Today I ran a drill were I had 1 blind at 110 yards to the left and another blind set at 75 yards to the right, with a winger set to throw towards the line of the blind on the left for a 60 yard mark . I ran the blind to the right 1st, and she lined it, returned to heel, launched winger with bird in mouth, sent to mark and returned, lined up to the left side blind she took a good line for about 90 yards, and drifted right! I stopped her and gave a left over to get her back on line. She took the cast for 5 yards turned a went back, I stopped her again , and same thing, which put her off line and 20 yards past blind. I moved up called her in to the spot she took bad cast, and re casted, with same result. This went on for 3 or 4 times until she finally took the cast which took her to the bird.
Any drills or tips to correct this ? or keep hammering her with attrition till it gets through her head ?
