    Default Casting into water drill

    Looking forward to warmer weather so we can get back into training. Since most of the water is frozen around here, I put together a video of casting into water from last August.

    Nice video ...enjoyed watching your pup. After you stop her is the second whistle designed to get her to face you for the cast over or back? Does she typically stop and sit that direction or was that happening because she wanted to face the pile across the water? Are you using a visual cue to square her up or is the reminder whistle sufficient on its own?

    I'm not picking on ya ...I'm a beginner trying to learn.

    Willie,

    What is your evolution through the cast-into-water skill set? Steps; start to finish?

    Well done! Nice pup. That pond looks very similar to the one I use for the same setup.

    The use of a GoPro camera is something I really need to look into. Thanks for posting.

    Very nice set up, I wish I had some nice water nearby. I like the way you gave a "back" when your dog was anticipating the 3rd "over".

    Thanks for posting that!!

    It was like a breath of fresh air seeing green and open water. Those of us in the north won't see that for awhile.

    Your pup seems to like his/her work too. Good job
    May you pin all the marks and line the blinds!!
