This is my small pattern field tech pond used for puppy training and for older dog tune ups...

Very nice.

I see some cover in the middle. Is there something there that you can't/don't mow around or do you leave it on purpose?

There is an island in the middle. There is also a shallower area in front of the island.

I have intentionally allowed cover to develop in order to have the dogs run through.

The pond channels are roughly 6 feet deep.

There is a nice section of running water on the near side of the island (about knee deep with lots of cover).

I can roam around the pond and approach from differing angles which changes the entire look. I can also back up about 125 yards and have multiple long entries.

Is that also your "swimby" pond,or do you have another for that?

It serves as my swim-by pond as well...

Matt-you guys come on over whenever you want. The new mounds that we built last fall open up the entire south side. Thanks to Marv and Bill for their suggestions.
