Slow day Peake?
I use it, but one needs to be careful as not to distract a fire breather (you know who I mean) hand down. "dead bird" push pull to get lined up. Onnce the dog is lined up and ready the hand becomes stationary and does notmove, thus not distracting the dog. Send on "back".
You see alot of handlers make a big swinging motion for the dog to follow, this can be a distraction to the dog as it is natural for a dog to follow movement similar to prey drive. "Prey drive" = prey runs to escape dog, dog runs to catch prey. The hand is ok but keep it still and be consistent with it.

Thinking I need to go chase something regards. Dale
