You're doing swim by and dog is casting well with bumper in mouth. Not able yet to stand in one spot and direct the whole drill but it's working fine with some handler movement up and down the bank.
Pup has given a refusal or two to enter water on an over cast and gotten corrected for it. Once corrected, she has auto cast into the water several times. Now, without me saying anything she will retrieve the side piles and immediately re-enter the water without being stopped and cast.
So, she clearly knows what we want (see water get in).
She's been forced into, across and back into the water. Direct pressure has been applied to the sit command as has indirect pressure. No adverse or unusual reactions to pressure.
Are we done yet, in your mind?
I know my personal answer but curious what the young dog PROS think.
Clue to my answer is... we did some easy channel blinds today and she did great, handling on the way out and back to stay in the water.
