When I train I always try and do my land blinds first. The dogs are excited and eager to get out. Also
I can gear my marks for each dog if they need to have more then their normal success. Also I don't
like to put a dog away on a blind, most of the time I don't have much trouble, but I make it a habit to end
on a good note. Also I always do at least 3 or 4 blinds with each blind I try and make them more difficult. Such as running
into a cross wind. Dogs learn with repetition.
Blind 2 Blind 3
Blind 1 /\
Line1 Line2 Line3
From line 1 the blinds are the most difficult. But the wind is so that blind1 is down wind,
blind 2 is a litte cross wind and blind 2 is dead cross wind being the most difficult.
If I have a dogs out of basics finished double T and pattern blinds I start at line 3.
As the dogs get more experience I move to line 2 and then to line 1.
