    I'm sure that I will get blasted here but I have seen dogs like this and have found that usually the problem arises not out of "hold" training but out of not enough pressure being used during the...

    I don't understand why this principle is complicated. Dead air space is an insulator that's why loft is important with conventional insulation. Without the attic the house would feel like the attic...

    I think that its a personal preference. I personally condition on low level continuous and then transition to nicks. This method builds speed and confidence not that either way is wrong. One thing...

    I don't have a crossover so I can't comment on that but I'm in Texas too so I know about heat. Remember that with a taller box there is usually more insulation space and or dead air space in the top...

    In my experience I have seen the majority of dogs stop on a whistle clockwise and like to cast to the handlers right (their left). I have only trained three dogs that stopped the other direction on a...

    This all depends. Using the TT as the example some high drive dogs will blow through it. Some have drive that gets in the way and you have problems, (blowing off the line at the first twitch,...

    If he is pressure conditioned and he has run these blinds before and is blowing you off for ten casts while standing right in front of him I would be going up in pressure. Nick "back" as soon as he...

    Tell your dad to put the bark collar on and walk away. The beauty of a bark collar is there is really no way for you to associate the correction that you are getting with anything other than all the...

    I'm sorry but I have to disagree with this argument. A person can bleed to death in a 30 seconds. A person cannot maintain life without a patent airway after 3 minutes. Total scene time for trauma...
