    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. ...

    Yes, he uses "Back" for blinds. The simple answer is for simplicity, and communication with the dog, as well as making it a command that is readily, and easily used with a number of dogs, and THE...

    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.

    Couple things to think about concerning correction vs reinforcement with the collar. Yes, there are times when the collar is used at higher levels, in a more traditional manner. Bill describes the...

    I think there are two terms that come to my mind when thinking about Hilmmann's way of training. They are "seamless", and "conditioning". If you are almost through the material in the Puppy DVD,...

    They went out of business last summer. I had an order in for 3 kennels, that were never delivered. Luckily, Visa refunded my money.

    For a similar, but IMO better product, check out TK Products.

    I like the idea of the adjustability to 20 or 40 yards for ducks, but the added size/weight and price seemed a little overkill for my needs.

    I think people that know, what ENS is, and perform ENS are the same people that will (and do) spend a ton of time with the litter anyway. Is it the ENS, or just the "thorough" process of whelping and...
