Round Bales and Lake Country Retriever Club’s Last Night
We’re happy to have Lake Country Retriever Club (https://lcretrieverclub.org/) back to the grounds for one last session of this training series. The grounds have been cleared, the grass has been dried and baled. Tonight we’ve hid all the gun stations behind round bales, so there will be no holding blinds tonight. The dogs will really have to focus on where the marks are coming from behind the bales. Tonight’s training setup is triple mark with a double blind. We are again joined by expert In-Home Dog & Puppy Trainer and our Judge for the night, Leda Blom, from Leda K9 (https://www.ledak9.com/).
More info on the setup below.
The first mark is starting in the handler’s left field of view across the pond. This is a multiple water entry mark is coming from the round bale, flying from left to right angled back into the field at approximately 160 yards.
The second mark is another multiple entry water mark. The mark flies right to left from the round bale landing on the edge of the point. This mark is approximately 90 yards.
The third mark is a land mark all the way over to the handler’s right side. The mark flies from left to right, angled back, at a distance of approximately 120 yards.
We now swing back over to the handler’s left side for the first blind. We’ve setup a keyhole blind here, across the pond, and just over the edge of the mound. Decoys have been strategic placed to create the keyhole into the Blind. The distance here is approximately 125 yards.
The second blind has the dog running through the old fall from the second mark and then past to the blind. It is a multiple water entry Blind that runs the dog past the point from second mark, back into and out of the water to grab the Blind and return from approximately 115 yards.
