The reason for the double blind is just as important as any of the other concepts that are being tested. I especially like the idea of running them B/B, just to see if the dog is still in step with the handler/trainer, or has it "limited out" on the number of whistles it will respond to. It's also a way to judge perseverence more thoroughly.

As it pertains to hunting, we've run as many as 4 blinds B/B on black geese. Pretty hard to call picking up snows as multi-blinds, but we've had beaucoup of those. (On one 'conservation' hunt, Da Bull had 17 water retrieves, and 9 on land)

It's one of the requirements that places the Master test on a slightly higher level of achievement than the other hunt testing programs. OMHDAO
