the people with trained retrievers never have an issue with steadiness. its not like we go up there and just do a whole weekend of out of control fun bumpers. we instill and expect the same level of OB as we would anywhere.
My dogs are as steady on the dock as in the blind. It's all a matter of obedience.

Buzz, re. your post on stirring the pot, glad to see you really do have a sense of humor.
DG, that is pretty impressive that the handlers got all six of their black dogs to jump so close to each other!
