I third post 11. I just wish I would have seen it before I worried too much about this with my dog on the TT. It's showing up in the pattern blind teaching I am doing right now. Good thing he takes a good line, so I can let him run and work it out of his system. He doesn't pop, but he is having some slow-goes that I think are his way of making dadgum sure he sits down if he hears the whistle.

But he is gradually getting better, so I have that going for me. Which is nice.

Question: does anybody see any unintended consequences from using actual birds in the morning on the two outside legs of the pattern blind before teaching the middle leg? My thinking is that the birds would help his momentum on the blinds.

Thanks Ken. For some reason it just seemed like it would end up causing more problems than it might solve.

I ended up not using birds this AM. Momentum was better anyway.
