    "What does a club expect when it opts for an O/H stake and does the language need to be adjusted to achieve that end?"

    Dave,

    That is very close to Hillmann's Traffic Cop method which I use on all of my young dogs now. I believe it is the best way to instill the 'sit' command.

    The only difference is that he...

    Every dog is different and I know of many dogs that 'traditional force fetch' has ruined. Bill's method of 'Fetch' is easy to follow and keeps up the momentum. You can use it alone or in combination...

    Hi Weathered,

    You have the right idea by starting from the very beginning.
