    I am very active in AKC obedience but not a member of an obedience club. Reason why? The closest obedience club is over two hours away. Most clubs at least require a minimum number of meetings...

    What do you do when a dog, after a few sends, won't look at the pile?

    I go about introducing birds to an older dog a little differently. I start by having them retrieve from my hand. If they don't do it on their own then I will open their mouths for them and place it...

    Barking to be sent

    I've searched and read all the posts about noise on the line, but just thought I'd make a post for any advice tailored to my dog.

    We just started articles last week so I don't think that's the issue, but we have been tracking for awhile, I wonder if that is related. He also has issues with wanting track too "big". Wants to do...

    If I'm reading him right, I don't think he's running for the joy of running (I do have one that tried that), I think he gets to where he thinks the bumper should be, doesn't see it immediately, and...

    Couple of things I'm seeing from my dog, and I'm not experienced enough to know what to do:

    Training Camp?

    Is there anyone that offers something like a training camp (for both the owners and dogs) where I could get away for a few days and just work on training all day? I do most of my training on my own,...

    Keep in mind that in order to get the pup at 4 months, that means getting the vaccination at 12 weeks. I personally wait as long as I can for rabies vac. Never for a 12 week pup.

    I have an 8 month old puppy. I wouldn't say he's totally "finished" with force fetch, but he's far enough along that he will pretty reliably retrieve on command.

    He's just recently started...

  23. Question on Bill Hillmann's fetch command

    I watched both the puppy DVD and the Fetch Command DVD. I don't feel like he really addressed what to do if the dog *didnt* retrieve the item. Did I miss something there? Let's say the dog goes...
