    I have to disagree with starting at just over 12 months. I feel that it is too young for all that pounding. Growth plates are still not closed. You can do your own research, but I would wait until at...

    I have to disagree with Wayne's assessment that there are dogs not suited to Hillmann's approach. Can't imagine what characteristics would be a bad fit?

    Without getting into details, I am referring to "the game", which is taught and developed in Hillmann's process from the beginning. This is a reward of extremely high value and has the great...
