Thread: Steady Techniques

  1. #1

    Default Steady Techniques

    Anyone have different spin on steadying other than having a lead at first and pulling back, requiring the dog to wait longer as the mark gets closer to ground. Examples of how u correct breaking by e collar calling back.

    Two suggestions:
    Buy Training a Ret Puppy by Bill Hillman. Bill uses a traffic cop technique
    Buy Vol 1 of Mike Lardy's Ret Journal articles. Mike uses a taunt lead, loose lead, etc technique.

    These two techniques have been discussed at length in previous posts.

    Especially if you have a new puppy..

    You end up with a very nice sit.

    Absolutely. I haven't done it yet, but studying his DVD's convinces me.

    I used the Hillmann puppy dvd for an adult dog with a creeping problem and had success.

    I am impressed with how effective Bill Hillman's Traffic Cop approach has been working for my pup. I have been following the Hillman Puppy DVD to the letter and at week 15 I could not be more pleased with her progress. Here is one of Bill's youtube vids on this topic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wn5Fv...z87p3NwunEac1J

    Lead rope tied to your leg with choke collar on pup. Puppy will only break 3 or 4 times problem solved

    That's a good way to break you as you pick yourself off the ground. LOL!
