Water work, cheaters
It's starting to cool off from the unseasonably high temps we've been getting lately, but it was still warm enough to run some water retrieves.
Both dogs readily re-entered the water on returns when no obvious opportunity to run the bank was available.
In addition, I ran both dogs on a few "cheating singles", such as channel swims where the line takes the dog close to a bank but the dog is to continue straight and not veer offline.
In Lumi's case, I had her perform difficult entries but with her SL not too far from the water entry. For Laddie, the SLs were 50 to 100 yards from the entry. Both dogs did nicely at the level we were working.
