    This is nothing new.

    I don't enjoy wasting my time on stuff like this.

    Please use the resource right. I'm asking you to please help me.

    Thanks, Chris
    So I can say his videos are idiotic, but not call him an idiot? I can handle that. I have never met the man so I don't know that he is an idiot.

    I must say, I'm pretty shocked by what I've been reading in this thread. I've not been a member of RTF for a long while, but long enough to know of the high standards... yet I never expected this kind of criticism of a guy who's truly passionate about dog training and is TRYING TO PROMOTE THE SPORT AND ACTIVITY OF DOG TRAINING. You may not like his facebook page, or his enthusiasm, or his methods, but he does a hell of a job reaching out and relating to the younger generations... the newer dog trainers. It seems to me like we could use more people interested in dogs and dog training. If you don't have a crop of younger, newer owners/trainers, the sport will die. I follow the smartwork program but I've still watched every one of the videos in Freddy's "self training the retriever" series. Just because someone is following a program doesn't mean they can't look for or use other ideas, other setups, or other approaches. And also, not everyone can afford to pay the kind of money guys charge for their training DVD collections. Freddy King's videos may not be up to your standards, but at least he's putting something helpful out there. Seems like there's something I've read on RTF a time or two... oh yea... "follow a program, any program," or "following any program is better than no program." Well to me, following Freddy King's "program", as idiotic as one might believe it is, should be much better than following no program at all.

    Wow.

    Do we all need permission before we can accept something "different" as being valuable?



    Feel free to think for yourselves.

    I like this idea.

    And I'll start by attacking a couple of ideas that he preaches.

    (1.) I think that place training is redundant and ridiculous.

    (2.) I think that if a dog understands being forced to fetch a bumper, there is nothing to be gained from forcing it to fetch logs, hammers, 2x4's or any other "odd" items.

    In fact, I think that many new trainers are convinced that their dog is done with FF, when it has really just become familiarized with silliness.

    I have said this before.

    If you honestly feel the need to degrade, or call somebody names, or laugh at their dress code, duck calling, underwear, or anything else that trips yer switch.

    Please make Gooser your default!!

    Everyone here knows I enjoy attention!

    That's very mature.

    I don't know Freddy King. I have no reason to suck up to Freddy King. Yet because I think it's absurd to slander someone, on a DOG TRAINING FORUM, who is doing more to promote hunting dogs and dog training than many many others, I'm a brown-noser??? That's pretty funny.
