    Default Google Earth view of some training water we get to use on occasion

    This is a Google Earth shot of a friend's property that was originally developed for Field Trial training. He's currently out of the sport, but he allows a few of us the privelege of using his place on occasion.


    As I look at this overhead view, I see that the lack of detail around hillside grading, cover height, etc can hinder your ability to truly design a good setup. You don't really know what the dog will see, and how it is likely to affect the dog, until you see it from his level.

    If any of you want to take a crack at what you'd do here, feel free to use your paint program and mark it up. I'd be interested to see.

    Thanks, Chris

    red x for me too.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
