"The Rationale"                

                Putting these videos in perspective, the intention has always been to use them as
                a feedback tool. I often find situations where a need to make adjustments is all too
                obvious "after the fact". In addition, all these videos are first time, no practice setups. 
                By design, "real time" cold takes can often be very revealing. Things like positioning
                at the line, inconsistent hand signals, rushing, poorly timed corrections or "nagging"
                all too often are forgotten in the heat of the moment. If missed too often they turn into
                bad habits and can inhibit a dog's progress. Indirectly, when the camera is "rolling",
                I have felt the useful pressure of being "under the gun". To a certain extent, this
                forces me to be more focused in the moment. The camera  doesn't lie.

                There is no intention of presenting any video as a "this is how to train" lesson. The
                videos are intentionally geared toward identifying and correcting "how not to train
                moments". Until I started going over films, scouting reports were non-existent.
 

                                      A huge bonus is reliving the fun moments with my dogs.
