I went to a Evan Graham seminar and he does a nice job in force fetching dogs. Just my recommendation. Be careful if you go to a friend to FF they may not really know what they are doing. Many years ago I asked a friend to help collar condition a dog. Real ass turned me off to the collar and many years later find how valuable the collar could/can be. There are some nice articles in Retriever Online about force fetch/ learned fetch.
I ordered several DVD's and books yesterday. (Merry Christmas to me) I will watch DVD's and read.
I also talked to a local trainer and he is willing to train ME in the art of FF. I'll be visiting him in January.
Then I'll probably have questions here on the forum.
