Title may be worded wrong, but I am wondering how long do ya'll use, or come back to specific pattern blinds you have established ? I have one field established with a 3 legged pattern, and have ran blind drills, and diversions on this pattern field atleast 2 times a week for a month and a half, and my pup knows the drill, and has no issues running like a pro on this field, But other than making me feel good, I am too the point that I see it's doing her no good anymore !
I am trying to work on her initial lines, and holding lines, which she does well on the pattern blind field, but not good at all when we have worked on BB blinds, or walk out blinds.
o my question is with a dog in the beginning/middle stages of transition, and for the lifetime of the dog, how often do you return back to a pattern blind field that the dog knows like its on dog house, and how often do you move to new areas and establish patterns ?
I am starting the stages of cheating singles, and ready to work on carrying lines through factors, and plan on using the same concepts of establishing pattern blinds for this training as well !
Just courious how ya'll utilize your pattern blinds ?
