Dave Rorem talks about using treats to improve focus in his high rollers. I suppose he doesn't count either .
Criquetpas, I enjoyed reading about your dogs.
Snake River's Banana Cream Pie QA2 MH
One of the best retriever trainers in the country. His handler DVD is well worth watching as well as the Carr and Rorem DVD's. I have judged him and he "practices what he preaches " , all real world stuff, not perfect world. Thanks for reading.

Eye contact is a good thing; however it can be overdone.
You don't want the dog trying to make eye contact with you when birds are going down or when you are lining them up for next mark; you want them looking out into the field
