    I like it. Remember the further back from the waters edge that the line is the more the dog will think CHEAT!

    Also not a fan of throwing birds into the water as they will drift around. We work so hard to teach a dog to remember exactly where a bird hits the ground, then throw one in the water and its not where the dog remembers = teaching a dog to get out there close and put on a hunt.

    What is not evident in the second picture is that the birds were thrown into water vegetation thus not having to worry about them drifting for the left hand double and right hand single.
    The long down the shore bird was thrown right on the waters edge thus not allowing it move either.
