    Default flow chart

    This is probably a very very stupid question but id rather look stupid and learn then say nothing and be stupid. I dont completely understand the trt flow chart in the transition. For example it shows
    pattern blinds for land
    simple cheating singles for water
    wagon wheel for dtills
    therapy marks
    does this mean you do all 4 of these each day or what exactly im already doing simple cold blinds on land from following fowl dawgs after trainer weve been through all the land sequences of transition

    I think when you get to that point, it depends on the weather and other factors as to what order you might progress. The steps aren't as rigid as they might be earlier in basics. And typically you probably wouldn't do all of those things in one day. In my experience, cheating singles are probably more effective after your dog has run some pattern blinds and blind drills with diversions, but you could run some very basic entry type cheating singles before that.

    No it doesn't mean that do each of these four things each day. For instance I would do each of the items under Land Sequence (in the order listed) before I moved on to the Water Sequence items. The Drills can be worked into your program at any time. The Therapy Marks are to be used whenever it looks like the dog has been through the wringer. It is a pick me up for their attitude.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks guys that makes since weve done all the land sequences pattern blinds, blind drills, pattern blinds with diversions and some cold blindson land a little tougher than the elementary cold blinds on the lardy tape. I thought it would pretty tough to do all those things in 1 day
