Thanks Rob n Jane. Yes he is very enthusiastic, the problem with Gnash is "too much enthusiasm"

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.

Keen eye there! Yes 3rd and last legs were into the wind and I had about 40% food on the last so needed more control.

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?

Good observation, answer is long! Last summer we transitioned him to use his nose and go foot step to foot step without relying on sight, so I had to be very close to ensure accuracy plus I had to see the baited footstep to tap the line so he got conditioned that tap means food/reward (now I can control his speed with a tap on an empty step if he is hustling, he thinks there is food so starts to check it in detail hence slows down). His natural desire to rush is from a different kind of pressure.

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
