    Memory is one of the things that I find is easy to work on in an informal, "non-group" type atmosphere, and something you can incorporate into your daily training.

    Throw number one, then walk away 180 and throw #2 as a breaking/ excitement mark. If following Hillmann, he should be very familiar with this act. Get him revved up on the "go" bird to condition...

    You won't even come close to finding a used 70-200 f2.8 VR I or VR II for $600 (more like 2-3x that). The only Nikon 2.8 telephoto that you might find in that range would be the 80-200 f/2.8 AF-D. ...

    Well, that's the basis for avoidance training. It's "fear" of an "uncomfortable" stimulus. With that said, yes properly conditioned dogs work through it, and done correctly maintain style.
