    How about moving the line to the left. Cut the corner, go over the point and across the water between the 2 marks.

    Would that suffice for a Senior Hunt Test WB?

    To me the shoreline blind is almost easier than some of the senior land blinds I've seen. The concept and pitfalls are obvious. Like Carol said, the "straight forward" blind is often tougher than it looks. Senior can be a tough egg to crack and IMHO it seems many run it before they are really ready...dog and/or handler. Been there done that.

    Shoreline blinds are like channel blinds ... after the first couple whistles, the dog SHOULD know where he's supposed to go. If not, you just need to run more of them.

    Or run a water blind with the land series and a land blind with the water series, solves some problems with location of water blinds. Somewhere in the rule book it tells judges to be inventive....

    No blinds between marks in Senior. they must be outside of marks.

    Run the water blind first, then move the line and run the marks.

    Well, if a blind tight to the shore is too much just put a duck on a floating rat trap out in the middle of the pond within the distance limits.

    Training on down the shore blinds work on casting dog "into" the shore vs out to sea. If not doing so already you can teach dog a "permission cast" telling him it's "OK" to get dry. For all other casts, even if it sends dog very close to shore, dog is to understand to stay "wet". For the "permission cast" some voice the word Back in a different voice/inflection than used when saying Back for other things. Start with a quiet drawn out voice saying back as you cast but sounding like a sheep bleeting. "Baaaaaaaack". If you want you can train dog to run water blinds this way or something similar. make sure dog understands the new rules before you beat them up.
