Jay-Bird, these guys have given you some very good advise. It's never fun hearing criticism, even when you ask for it.
If this is your first go-round at training you'll do just fine. I've seen many start way worse and finish with a nice dog.
Besides the mechanics of how to do what, and when to do it. They also mention some very critical smaller points that go unseen by many.
Before "Internet" training and DVDs were around it took me a couple of years to learn these finer points by just watching and doing. A few of these points they mentioned are:
1) Holding your hand STILL and ABOVE the dogs head.
2) The tone and level of your voice.
3) Hand position for handling. Together and in center of your chest.
4) Verbal and silent backs. Each will have a time and place in advanced blind work.
Good luck with your pup!!
