Weve all delt with that., intro to birds this was great., intro to marks in cover, teaching basic doubles, intro to long tought doubles, intro to water and more, intro to multiple entries on water. Like I said if you want a real puppy teaching dvd this is it. Well worth the money.
    Thanks for the extra info Scott. I wasn't saying it wouldn't be worth the money. I don't even want to think about how much I have invested in training DVDs!! I was thinking of buying this when I first saw the advertisement, I just wish there was more of a preview clip to see what it's about. Like all the other ones I have, I'm sure I'll end up buying it anyway

He wanted to use dogs that would have issues so he could show real live scenarios on what they would do in different situations. For instance one of the dogs would take off with the bird after he picked it up. They showed intro to live birds with puppy's and different things to get your puppy in the water.

    Overall it covers a lot of the basic issues we all run into with young dogs and how to get through them. It's worth the purchase for sure.
    I think it does show his "wish list" of how he'd like a puppy started that comes into his program. Some don't even know their name. It really puts the puppy behind the 8 ball if they don't have a certain skill set when they get there.

    I am going buy it or talk my daughter in buying it for her library and I borrow it. Jim and associates are the best if not one of the best young dog trainers in the country. He also WORKS at the Manitowoc Field Trial a rare accomplishment in the Midwest upper Midwest circuit for a Pro trainer! Susan is correct the more a dog is exposed to "pre-basics" (providing they know what they are doing) the more bang you get for your buck when your dog goes to a young dog pro. I co-owned FC Landover's Ms Mouse with Win and Susie Purtel until she derbied out. I dropped her off at Right Start, she was FF and E-collared conditioned at about 7 months, Jim told me he is lucky sometimes if the dogs know their name when he gets the dog. Looking forward to viewing his DVD. You can always learn something no matter how small when it comes to retriever training. When "you think as a amateur you know it all" well your smarter then the average Bear I guess to quote the cartoon character. I'am not.
