I'm in the process of working on the HOLD command with my 8 mo lab, just prior to Force Fetch. I have read the Smartworks I - book and am in the process of reading through SmartFetch. In addition, I've just viewed for the first time the SmartFetch DVD - I think all the material so far is outstanding.
The question that I have is regards to the DVD, where Mr. Graham demonstrates Force to Mini Pile (3 bumpers) and ecollar stimulation. Am I correct to assume that when we condition the pup to ecollar stimulation we use the "continuous setting" until the dog picks up the bumper, but that when we transition to Force to Pile, we switch over to using the "momentary" stimulation with FETCH [no go] "nick" FETCH ....?
This is my first lab that I'm training so I'm very new to this. This will be my first time going through FF.
