    I think that Jim Dobbs may have changed, but his early training used direct force as outlined in the book authored by him: Tri Tronics Retriever Training. Neither Hillmann nor Lardy do that.

    Which dog food?

    What is the dog food of choice for adult dogs? I realize that this will vary widely, but it may narrow it down a bit. Thanks!
