    Now,
    Just Imagine the pic above is the Upper half of a typical wagon wheel. You start at closer distances, and you have a designated order in which youthrow the bumpers to teach the casts. You eventually get to the point you dont throw bumpers, and just cast the dog.. The dog has now learned the upper half of the Handling wagon wheel.

    Now you move to the bottom half. You leave dog sitting in the center,90 degrees to the overs, and facing to what will be the straight come in location. You throw bumpers to the straight come in location, and the angle ins. You are outside the circle standing in front of the straight come in location..

    You then teach the casts with the same specified order of throw, untill the dog understandsthe casts.

    Eventually you will be able to stand outside the circle with bumpers at each location,, and have the dog reliably cast to each place.

    You have taught angle backs,, many overs, angle ins,STRAIGHT BACKS,, and STRAIGHT COME INS.

    Its a neat drill, and you can eventually vary you distances..

    My dog LOVES running this.
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    Remember, when you start, the distances are not that great. You work up to those gradually.

    I dont know though if the drill will Guarentee your dog will take an over when he is sitting 200 yrd from you, and carry it for 100 yrds though.. I think thats askin a LOT..

    I think that comes from running LOTS of blinds..

    I'm gonna go run some right now..
