    Default Eckett question

    i have some training material and notes from a Bill Eckett seminar and it does not have any information whether he does the single or double T in his program. it has the 3 and 5 leg patterns instead. could someone tell me whether he does the does the single and double T along with the 3 and 5 leg patterns or just the 3 and 5 leg patterns? thanks

    I'm not trying to speak for Bill, but wouldn't it be redundant?

    just trying to clarify and compare notes from Mr. Eckett vs Farmer, Lardy or Evan. Farmer, Lardy and Evan use single and double T. a friend that runs hunt tests uses the 3 and 5 leg patterns instead for his program. but i want to say i heard Evan comment on either his training material or rtf that in order to be successful at field trials, you would have to perform the single and double T. just wondering about Eckett, if uses the 3 and 5 leg pattern vs T/TT and gets the same results since he has been very successful.

    Ask one of his clients or ask him yourself. He's always been very nice when I've called him to discuss dogs.

    From this post it appears you are either guessing or asserting that I have said or written that a trainer must run Single and Double T in order to be successful at field trials. You must have misunderstood me because I neither said, nor wrote that. If you have any questions for me you only need to ask.

    To what end are you inquiring? Do you want to know something about my method, or about Bill's? Or is it something else altogether?

    Bill has not run a T/TT or 3 leg in a very long time j/k.. His program is geared toward the 3-leg and 5-leg. There have been a few basic trainers there that have run both but it was not standard in the program. They are virtually one in the same and if taught/applied correctly accomplish the same thing and that is coming from a guy who spent 10 years there.

    Does Eckett have any material published (reading or viewing)for his program , training sequences , .... ?

    I missed his seminar a couple years ago ,and would love to attend one if he has another planned.

    Dex, how does the 3 legged pattern and the 5 legged pattern take the place of the TT? How do you go about doing the 3 legged and 5 legged patterns? There's a lot of info written on the TT, but not much written on the alternatives.

    Hate the Double T regards,

    Charles
