    Default 3 Peat Water Blinds Rowdy (by Pirate)

    Fighting the wind to and fro. Three peat water blinds. Looking to avoid shore. It sure was a suction given the wind.
    Lots of whistles.

    I think wind was a factor for sure. Do you think the locations of the first two blinds affected him on the subsequent blinds as well?

    I could have run them in reverse order. But I wanted him to ignore the previous placements too.

    My wife reviewed this video. Her conclusion: the shades of gray (tshirt and shorts) didn't go together. I had to change tshirts before we went to town together. Hahalol.

    Very nice blind work. A trick to help with the suction problem if you had the room to move to the right or into the wind in this case to help the dog out going out and coming back. Since you are training and not in a test the line is not as important as keeping the dog on the proper line in this case IMHO. By moving you are able to give the dog backs and angle backs instead of overs. On the return by moving you give the dog more room, on the water side, to stay honest as he should be using you as his target to come back to. Try to position yourself in as straight a line between yourself, the dog, and the blind if possible.

    It looked like there was a water spout forming in the pond on the third blind.

    I hope you don't mind if I try to analyze it in order for me to try to understand it which I don't.

    On the first one, he squares the bank up where you are after the curve, and is going wide of the blind into the wind, and then gets casted with the wind at the end. If you were working on a crosswind blind, that wouldn't be how that played out. Maybe if you started further up he might of had a better idea what the plan was and if he had ran the bank you could have casted him in and then casted to hug the shore line. With the next two blinds, the shore line is irregular and you are probably going more into the wind than at a crosswind. Maybe in a more perfect world you would find a straight shoreline crosswind blind on one pond, and then go other similar spots and repeat. Maybe crosswind three peat blinds at the same location are near impossible to set up and anyone that attempts to do so is on a fools errand?

    The pond is within our rural subdivision and has an aerator which sprays the water up. The wind was catching the spray.
    On the first blind he squared the entry a bit ( get in the water was on his mind) but got back on line by himself. At the very end he was only a few feet from the bumper. Note I held up my two fingers to make sure he was on a reasonable line.

    The wind has to be dealt with as you find it for that day considering the layout of the pond.

    I need to give credit to Dennis Voigt for coining the phrase "Three Peat". I encourage everyone to consider buying his latest training dvd: 25 Essential Drills........"
