    Default Rowdy (by Pirate) Water de-cheating drill

    Rowdy has finished swimby and we are now working on de-cheating water. The Lardy next step
    is water de-cheating singles but my ponds don't lend themselves to this. So we are improvising. I will have to load up and go to Akermans soon. We are not there yet but making progress. Can you tell which line he got in trouble on? On the last retrieve return, Howard is probably thinking why doesn't he handle. Then I did. What a great over!

    Wayne,

    That's a Tune-up drill (Tune-up #1) as I learned it. Looks like he's doing well, but it also looks like he would be challenged a bit more by your moving to the left a bit on the latter blinds.

    Evan, We're working our way up to that. Thanks, Wayne

    I go along with Evan, I think it's better to make the pond slices thinner by moving to left on each send. Also, my dogs are two sided so I'd be sending on all of these from the right hand side. But, he's doing well and staying wet.

    I was wondering what the first time you did this looked like?

    I am almost ready to start it with my youngster. We are almost finished with swim bye now but we're expecting more snow. Probably won't finish swim bye until next week and start on this similar tune up right after.

    Now that you mention it, I should have been using the right side more. I am going to start moving to the left.
    The first time had lots of casts to the bumpers and on the way back, lots of over and back casts.

    Thanks for posting Wayne. I agree with the other comments to make it more challenging move left and run your dog on both sides, Great video.

    Good afternoon Howard,

    If you don't mind my asking how old is your youngster?

    16 months today. We just had ice out on the small ponds. Bigger ponds and lakes are still iced over. Our water force and swim by are behind what they should be.

    Thanks Howard and Evan, I re-ran the drill this morning. I put Rowdy on my right side and after each send I moved a few steps to the left. It went very well. By the last send I was running parallel and just a few feet off the shore.
    I was going to video but my battery was too low. I will charge and try again in a few days.
