    I really do. Most like this will be holding well very quickly. Some of the hard headed ones are not so quick to catch on but once you have them picking up off the ground you have an enforcement tool...

    The OP stated that he has had experience FF many dogs. This technique is not something most new trainers have an easy time understanding. Once you have forced a few dogs you will find that pressure,...

    If she is not dropping the object but not holding tightly move on to pressure and it will fix the hold. If she is not spitting it she understands so move on. BTW this is very common in certain...

    I don't have all the answers but I do to this one. It is very common in high drive or fast dogs. When the dog either goes as soon as you twitch or looks in the direction of the pile and thus away...

    I think the point is completely being missed here. First off even Lardy says that he is using pressure at this point only when he gets a clear lack of effort. I believe the example that is used is...

    That dog is ready to move on. Take a session where you leave the dog in the kennel. Stand in front of a full length mirror and practice your casting. You will learn a lot. Also practice casting SLOW....

    I believe Evan also has the dog on a cord during this process. That thing is not just for looks. Its for a lot of things including preventing bolting during pressure conditioning and keeping the dog...

    Well that sounds more like it. It sounds like you are on the right track. The standard answer is 10-15 min sessions like Wayne said. 20 tops. But, and there is always a but, down here in the summer...

    Run standard order first. Mark then blind. Once the dog is doing all the phases in standard order then you can introduce poison bird order. Be cautious about noing your dog off of a mark that you...

    First off I would like to say that I agree fully with all of the previous posts and trying to get your dog to love retrieving is what you should do first and foremost. However, and I will say this is...

    I kind of favor a certain progression that seems to make learning to mark easier for the dogs, at least the type of dog I usually train. I start with hand thrown singles with a bird boy and no...

    The most alarming thing to me is that you are mentioning no goes. If you are only using one bumper and throwing it as you said you are then there should be no no goes. I don't follow this method but...

    The ingredients for your success are low grass and one (1) giant white bumper. I like to use a check cord as well but you are going to get mixed opinions on it. Sit dog in front. Throw bumper. Give...

    Good point. The last statement should really be "then you should be able to progress".

    Good point Wayne. I just see so many people that forget that this is a process. The same standard would still apply for that portion of the process.

    I have to say that I disagree with some of the previous posts. I don't consider a dog force fetched until they are through walking fetch and force to the pile. My standard for that would be 3...

    To each their own but I am not a fan of holding a dog this tight when first transitioning to cold blinds. Later yes but right now I would suggest as long as the dog gives you a good change of...

    I would hardly call it inefficient. In fact I would call spending days, weeks, or months teaching a skill that can be simplified for the dog inefficient. It literally means taking two steps about...
