I need to buy a really good how to force-fetch book. If you have any suggestions please let me know. I want to train my own dogs instead of paying alot of money to have it done. I have some experience training but not the force fetch area. Thanks

Google rushcreek press or Evan Graham and the book is called Smartfetch. He also has a DVD called Smartfetch. You don't need them together but if you can afford it they go nice together.

prolly MOST here will believe this is dated material,, but I think it is an excellent book.

I sold mine a few years back, as a favor.

Its pretty much an all round book, but I think it has a good section on FF.

The Tri-Tronics book is great.

Jim Spenser's, "Training Retrievers for Marshes and Meadows," has a great section on force fetching. It's about 1/3rd of the book.

Jim Spenser's book that Howard mentioned, while pretty old, is still my favorite description of the traditional force fetch process. I get my copy out with every new puppy... I've enjoyed everything he's written.

I don't know if you are interested in getting a DVD, if so take a look at Dan Hosfords "the conditioned retrieve" part 1 & 2. I bought them and am very pleased with the progress of my pup.Good Luck..
