I've read here and heard people infer that bringing dogs to the line in a HT can be difficult for the younger dogs. What is it that is difficult? Are they just wound so tight that they will not sit still?
Remember, I'm coming from the versatile dog background. We do have tightly wound dogs but I don't see a whole lot of problems at the beginning of steadiness sequences where a retrieve is required. I can easily heal my dogs up to the sequence, have them sit and wait out the gunfire and distractions before making retrieves.
What am I missing? Are we talking about two different things?
