Yup, but if it pops up into the mid-upper 60s the little monsters will come out for an afternoon stroll....like last Thursday.
Thanks for sharing the video Packen, enjoyed watching it, watched it all the way through and learned by reading the comments here as well.

I call it a success right now. The difference in the two videos shows that the training is working. I don't do much FST, so my observations are general in nature and I mean nothing negative by them. I like the progression in training and focus in the dog.
Changing the rules on a highly trained dog, and the dog shifting gears successfully is a testament to the quality of the dog and your relationship. It's not an easy thing for some dogs to handle. I don't see stress in him at all, and there is often fallout from switching things up.
Good job both of you!

Now he is relatively accurate, a few tracks ago I reeled him out to spec distance (33 foot) on 2 legs and he settled in nicely and was accurate to within a foot step so I know it is working. It is difficult to change training styles on a 4yr old dog but it is working and if we get a 50% or more improvement I would call it success

and you tie the tracking line to a sled Laying the track would be another story!

I watched the earlier video of Gnash tracking too, and I think you were creeping on him. This spatial pressure can rush the dog a bit IMHO. He handles it really well, and it may not have effected him at all. Just something I noticed.
How does he do if you back off on the line and give him some space?

Looks pretty good!
On the last leg, you can see he's trying to blast through to the article. Must have been downwind of it on that leg. Nice timing on your part.
