Hey Folks, I had a discussion with a Judge while helping set-up for our test this weekend and he brought up challenging the blind and what he expected to see. My understanding of his direction is one should not give a literal cast toward the blind when if the dog deviated from the line, but give an over to the line.... whistle sit.. and then a back... and repeat (if neccessary). I thought to myself that I must be misunderstanding him and asked questions for clarification but I guess I understood him correctly. I then had a club member (With a MH who has been doing this for 20 plus years) discuss it with me after I ran because I did not do as he suggested. I have drawn what I did with what he suggested (on the right) for clarification. Now I was purposely a little late with my whistles because I wanted to keep them down but all and all, he two whistled a 80 yard water blind with a diversion shot on the way out (and a bull dog on the way back). Am I yet again missing something here?
