    Hey guys, I spoke with Stan live. He has reset his browser, so it's more than that.

    I don't have the answers. My mop bucket is so much smaller now! :cool:

    Hi Stan,

    As you know, I'm no longer the man behind the curtain responsible for OZ.

    However, I post on RTF on an iPhone, an iPad and a PC with no issue with any of them.

    I don't know what the...

    I remember Mike Lardy telling the group at a Montello Workshop in 2009 this exact thing. To paraphrase, there is no benefit to running a dog as test dog.

    Alain, can you give any details? Is it a gas-propelled cumbustion affair? Is it driven by blank ammunition (.22 cal or the like)? Is it driven by tubing under tension?

    Excellent stuff!

    As some have already suggested, I'd re-watch the Hillmann DVD and soak up what you can.

    I'd also suggest that you may want to consider some direct dialogue with the Hillmanns. They are very...

    I believe the reason Bill came out with a specific Force Fetch DVD was that the original puppy material with the force fetch contents were confusing to some.

    It always made me bristle when that description is used to define Force breaking. I agree that, as Mike Lardy puts it, Force Fetch need not be a "chamber of horrors".
