Hand cue

I use it on all blinds, and long marks or where the dog needs to drive past something,

The most important use that I have is for the go bird. The hand is part of the chain to release the dog. The dog is less likely to go if he learns to expect the hand before being released.

I've seen people use the hand with real poor technique: putting the hand down as they say the name and even worse, moving it out as the dog goes almost, as if the dog is being launched.
