Temps were in the 60s when we started, and rose well into the 70s by the time we finished. It would have been too hot to continue even if I'd felt the dogs would have benefited from a longer session, which I didn't.
Laddie and Sasha are at different levels, so after they had some time to air in the field, I alternated their training: first Laddie, then Sasha, then Laddie again, and finally Sasha again. As each dog trained, the other rested in the crate in the back of the van.
In this post, I'll just describe Laddie's work. Please see this post if you're interested in reading about Sasha's work during the session.
Series A. Land blind with poison bird
The poison mark was a single thrown on the right, LTR at 70y. The blind was on the left (behind the thrower) at 100y, with the line over a mound.
Series B. Three walking singles, the last as poison bird for a blind
The first single was thrown RTL at 100y. The second was thrown LTR at 120y. The third was thrown RTL at 140y, but before Laddie was sent to the third mark, I ran him on a blind at 110y at a wide angle to the right of the third mark. The line to the blind crossed over the edge of a mound.
I kept Laddie in a tight corridor on the blinds in both series, and used them to tune up Laddie's whistle sit, walking out to pick him up for his first sit in the first blind, which was too slow.
Laddie's work was enthusiastic as usual, and he marked all the singles well except the last poison bird, the placement of which he forgot while running the blind and which therefore required a moderate hunt on both sides of the gunner, but without leaving the area where the gunner was standing, and without pausing or popping.
