hey there, its the rookie again with some questions. We are following along with Smartworks and I just wanted to clarify a few loose ends that I can't seem to find on the DVDS. We will begin mini-pile later this week and I want to make sure I am prepared.
1) is there an average time frame on that? still around 10 minutes per session?
2) The next progression if 9-pile. Are you to use pressure through that whole process and with each command?
a. Again what is the time frame on that?
b. Also when do you use start using “Back” (after he is getting it on fetch). The video starts with using it during the en route retrieve and then he uses it as the command.
c. Also do you use dead bird at that same time before?
d. The whole timing issue is VERY vague and VERY confusing for a rookie like myself so I apologize for asking the same question. But its better for me to have some understanding of the norm. Cobb picks up on these things very quickly.
3) Is the next step after this (LONG WAYS OUT BUT) pattern blinds?
