Disciplined Casting

Because DW Renee's mother went into the hospital for surgery yesterday, the dogs and I did no training yesterday, and had only a single session today, on our double-T course at Fair Hill.

I tried both dogs out on disciplined casting (DC) today, stopping and casting them after they had picked up the dummy at P2. Not realizing how confusing it would be, I tried it out on Laddie (who runs first while Lumi honors) on the full double-T course, and he was totally flummoxed. So we did some work on a small T and then he had no trouble with it.

Learning my lesson, I started Lumi out on a small T and she also had no trouble with it.
