I voted for shoreline blind, but the same concept should include a mark as well as a blind.
I have always considdered the week or so "shore braking" a dog the worst time period in a "basics program", and IMHO teaching a dog to hold it's line on entry is part of this.

I said down the shore. My second choice was into the wind. I work all of the above concepts routinely but work shoreline the most. I believe past a point is a variation on the same theme.

A recent setup I ran containing many of the above concepts

Damn fine water, indeed. All right, Joe, out with it! (You can PM me if you like :wink: ).

I vote for shouldering against the wind and current on a long retire.

I vote for down the shore marks / blinds. Points are also part of the concept.

Isn't one left out?

Teaching a dog to stand still in the back yard while giving him/her a bath? :D
