I think you may have a better shot at staying in the water and on the correct side of the left gun if you clear the middle bird second. Wouldn’t want to be too disciplined on the middle bird and have them thinking too much water and gut hunt that hillside. I think the left bird is the discipline bird.

To both of you: Why?
My dog is young and with the water being the way it is on the middle bird, if I bear down on her in an attempt to punch her out there, she’s probably going to think she needs more water. I’d rather her memory be pretty fresh and have her relaxed for the middle bird and hopefully outweigh her desire to get in too much water and potentially hunt all over that hill behind the gun, especially with more memory being eroded if we tried it last.
To me and for my dog, the left bird seems pretty straightforward and I think I can get her out there without too much trouble if we tried it last.
