    Where are you located at? You might have members here on RTF that are not far from you that would be willing to help. Best advise I read in this thread so far is putting away that transmitter until you find someone to mentor you.

    I knew that. I was just pulling his chain for some levity. If you working on quicker stop, there is video of me doing that with Hank (by Pirate). Along with the helpful comments I
    got from rtf. Do a search.

    John, Spell that out for me. Skinny I would take up that offer from Mike Perry. I still don't know if you are following an established program. If you are and depending on which one, you can get better advice.

    I agree!! 90 miles is not an excuse ....I have people that come to me twice a week that drive 2 hrs each way..... And when I go to pros bigger than I am, I drive 2 plus hrs or even 8 hrs and spend $125 a day with them. GO GET HELP> NOT FAIR TO DOG

    Paul, I know. I couldn't keep track of the issues but I thought he said that was what he set out to do. I was thinking he got into trouble by nicking on the first sit whistle. This causing the no goes and bolting. But I'll admit I am just guessing.

    There you go. Take a Saturday, drive to Mike's and get this ironed out. You may be surprised at how simple it is when you work with someone adequately experienced.
