I recieved alot of great feedback from posting the videos and it was all very much appreciated and am glad to say all the issues/problems were with me and not TY. It really got me thinking maybe my videos and your feedback followed up by my correcting the issues could help/benifit other young trainers.
I posted yesterdays videos on this forum and 2 others (RTF and CHDF)
Here is what i was picked up on;
1)I was rushing him in between retrieves
2) I wasn't looking at where he was looking when i dropped my hand and "released" him.
3) My marks were far to tight
4)I wasn't looking at him as i threw the marks to make sure he was looking
5) Everyone will have different views on this one but from now on I will release him on "TY" for marks and pile work and "Back" for blinds.
6)A neat one that was passed on is that i dont think im going to release him from the blind, i dont want it to be a launch pad, he can see better from the heel, and my blind will last longer...
Heres this morning with me working on my issues. My pup is a Rockstar and we have way to much fun.
