I have a 2 year old that takes nice initial lines on marks, but then slowly angles downwind and relies too much on her nose. She sometimes starts to hunt 20 yds or more downwind of the area of the fall, and ends up with a big hunt, with her nose in the air the whole time. This is mainly an issue with cross winds and marks >80 yds. Happens on land and water, particularly marks that are land-water-land. At first I was happy when she learned to use her nose, but now she seems to have become too reliant on it.
I'm worried that if I handle her to get her back on line, it will create popping. But not sure what else I can do when she is 40 yds from the line and starts to angle downwind and away from the area of the fall. Any thoughts?
