Freighter had an easier time than Storm with the second set-up last Saturday. Of course since he is not as advanced in his training, he ran an easier version.
To review, the set-up was to the left side of the field. The dogs had previously run a similar set-up on the right side of the field.
Freighter ran Blind #1, then watched and retrieved Mark #2, then ran Blind #3.
The challenge was to get Freighter to take a line in between two trees which was the correct line to Blind #1.
Next Freighter watched and retrieved the mark and had no problem with it.
The last thing Freighter had to do was to retrieve Blind #3 from the far left corner of the field.
Since Freighter is still learning, he was cut a bit of slack on the cast refusals. The object is to teach him to rely on his handler and to build his confidence when running more complicated blinds.
