    The first question we are gonna ask is where are you in training and what are you wanting to teach? We'll go from there.

    With the water & your training level, cheating singles are a logical next step. Run them at every corner of the pond, then turn around & run them with the new line where the mark fell. I would also work reentries on the point. First as blinds then as cheating singles with the reentry cheaty. Then marks & blinds that require swimming by the point.

    With land & an obvious bowl, throw marks & blinds that require pushing up the far hill. Then abcd drills with hip pockets, indents, reverse hip pockets, pinched marks, flower pots & inlines.

    Maybe that will give you some ideas. All of my suggestions are teaching & training set ups.

    Pinched marks are simply converging marks. For some dogs it will tempt switching if the marks are tight & one mark is difficult. May be a local term.

    Thanks. I think I've heard the term a few times around here, just never knew what it meant.
