Freddy King, hahahahahaha. Lots of entertainment value, now much else however.
If Corey has the nerve to tell 600 people to their face that Freddy King is an idiot that can't train a dog to wag its tail, including Freddy King, then you're right.
I know Corey in person. I don't think Corey is that much of a jerk in real life. He is more tactful than that.
Hence my my point that it is not COMPLETELY like a tail gate.
On RTF one is broadcasting to a much larger audience than he may realize.
My suggestion is that we address folks in a way that we would want to be addressed ourselves.
I had had a nice discussion with Freddy last night. He was getting up at 4:30 this morning to train dogs. He has trained several grand dogs and Master Hunters. I don't know if he owns a white coat or not.
EDIT: And I hope that those of you who have been on RTF for many years will agree that I've been seeking a "Golden Rule" culture here consistently. Treat others, reference others, the way you'd like to be treated or referenced. This is nothing new.

Wow... Idiots abound..... Pretty sure Freddy King ain't one of them and I don't know him from Adam...
In fact.. I'm pretty sure I could train a duck dog with his YouTube channel (in fact I would dare say it's more complete than $150 worth of most programs) ...... sad part is most people buying a "program" aren't dog trainers... There just lay people.. and no "program" will change that... I see no need to be so critical.
Freddy on the other hand.. is clearly a dog trainer... Whether he teaches a dog to fetch a hammer or not... (even if folks seem to misinterpret the purpose of such)
A friend and trainer that won the National Championship at Ames plantation told me once... You CAN learn something from every dog trainer with any real experience.. IF you are willing to WATCH and LISTEN.
Good luck with it... I can take another sabbatical from RTF now

But, I think the at least part of what has bothered you about this thread is something you have done in this post. You've made some very broad accusations in your efforts to put those you perceive as "idiots" in their places. If, indeed, you chose to use Freddie's videos to train your dog, that would surely be your choice. I suspect you could get it done. But that says nothing about the standards you hope to achieve. Beyond that, your blanket indictment of "most programs" has no basis in fact.
I appreciate your good intentions.
