Hello all... I am new to this forum and new to training in general. That said, I have a 8 week old pup that I want to be a great house dog and a good hunter. In that order. While I hunt trials are great that is not what I am focused on. I have read a bunch of book/articles/videos etc in the past six months I am more confused then ever. I know most have very strong opinions on training methods I am looking for advice. Honestly I am trying to stay away from ecollars simply because I don't have one. I have read many books as stated earlier and really like the ideals behind wildrose (Stewart). While I may get negative feedback here I am looking for a great puppy DVD since Stewart doesn't have one. Again I am very new to this so go easy on me here. I am also not looking to spend a fortune on series of DVDs. While some will say you get what you pay for I'm just looking for ideas here.
