That one isn't for young dogs but I've got two FC's that should know when given a choice they should get wet.
    I have some places where I do multiple in and outs and I lose sight of my dog for a time. I think of it as a leap of faith when he jumps off the land into the water that he will hold his line if I see him turn as he jumps I know I'm in trouble. If he shows me he's wanting to angle off to one side before he jumps in I'll stop him and reenforce the line with a cast but I don't like to stop him and cast him off the land if I don't have to because I don't want to break his momentum.

    Bon if it was me on the first day I'd let Lance do the setups to run and let him evaluate me and my dog so he could help me figure out what I needed to work on the most. Is he going to train with you every day or are you on your own?

    I will see Pete next week again to train. That pup is still a fireball. She ran some nice marks today and carries a mallard like a big dog.

    Howard I was out throwing for that little fireball. You know she's been on Lardy's truck for 5 months. (Even though she is only 4 months). Woow she's nice. Pete is smiling inside but won't show it. He'll just says she's okay. I asked him is it true she'll be running the open come spring his answer "after she wins the Derby."

    Rest assured you will work on Lanse's schedule - been there, done that . It makes it nice as all tests will have something in them. You have to be stupid to go to someone's home grounds & believe you can add much. Just train the dog.

    I'd spend my 10 with Bert Carlson. Unfortunately, all I get to do is talk about how Swedish Pine Tar paint will keep wood lasting a coupla hundred years while bouncing around on a Genie lift........Did get a Dr. Lundy story and some advice about training set ups. Otherwise, here's your power bill kid....

    If I could spend 10 days training with Mr Lanse Brown I wouldn't give two hoots what my dogs needed. They could veg on the truck all week. I would mainly be interested in learning what the heck Lanse does with his dogs.

    I bet there'd be lots and lots of stories mixed in with the dog work too.

    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

    Had no illusions of anything else, the only thing I get control over is what I cook he and Jimmie for dinner,
    In the sake of full disclosure I have been around Lanse long enough to know how he wants things done, what I had hoped for was some input from some newbies that have asked me from time to time if Lanse would take the time to train with them

    My general response is similar to the one Tim Springer sent me, if you watch how Lanse interacts with his dogs one would learn a ton,he is also good about explaining his rationale behind his set up, I am there for comedic relief and for the fact it's something I had promised myself I would always do before it's too late
    I don't expect to find many answers because I am not exactly asking too many questions, I know what Brig can do and there will be little to no tinkering done,strictly a tune up not an overhaul

    Bon, I missed the Lanse part of the question. Missed, thought it was a general question.....Lanse gave me some advice about how to run a test at Bob Peppers Retriever Grounds. I think it was good advice. I suppose that Lanse's advice wasn't all that good for me that day. I was shooting the fliers and just waiting to go relieve the gunner. It was a good persective and I appreciated the gesture of good sportsman ship on his part.
