    Would still depend on his normal activity level. If he's used to running lots he will have more stamina.

    You "could" wade out into the pond and use mouse traps to hold your bumpers at your pile locations.

    somehow I missed that or read it wrong..oops!......but yes if my dog bends his body 90 degrees I can see his ribs.

    Personally I don't like to visually see ribs/spine/hip bones. I think a good waist line with the ability to easily feel the ribs is about right for a healthy active dog.

    My male is around 73lbs. Can't see his ribs, but they are easy to feel. I've been told my dog is too thin by a number of pet owners, yet when he goes to the vet I'm always told how good of shape...

    Nothing to worry about. Let the pup be a pup. It will come. My pup showed very little enthusiasm in retrieving until he hit 6/7 months old!

    Hillmanns methods - questions and opinions

    Just finished watching the Hillmann puppy DVD. So far I'm impressed with his training method. But I have a few questions.

    15 hours a day? You must be including during the night??? If not, that's a long time to kennelled. No wonder he has energy to bounce around!

    Other than that, I'd say don't let him do anything...

    Unfortunately I think she may be in over her head with what ever dog she choses. But I may be wrong. I will see what she thinks about the Shepherds.

    He needs to be excited for the marks. Maybe try using some clipped wing pigeons, and shorten your distance so he can see the bird moving around out there. Shouldn't be long before he starts looking...

    I've never used hillman, but IMO you should repeat until you get the desired response. No rush here. Take your time and let your pups response be your signal to move forward.
