    Default Retriever Journal articles

    For those interested, I've begun writing monthly training articles for The Retriever Journal again, and subscribers can log on to their site to view them anytime.

    The link is http://www.retrieverjournal.com/soco...c07_Skills.php and http://www.retrieverjournal.com/soco...n08_Skills.php for the first two articles. December, '07 is "The Best Training Equipment for the Job", and January, '08 is "Working Retrievers from Boats, Platforms, and Blinds".

    I hope you enjoy them! If you have an idea or request for a topic, let me know and I may be able to work it in for a future piece.

    Thats almost enough to make me renew my subscription. In the past there were too many writers and not enough good dog people doing most of the articles.

    I agree. Vickie Lamb's articles are also very good!

    Walking baseball...I have no idea how to do it or what it is. It seems there are conflicting thoughts on what it entails as well.

    thanks,

    DL Walter's book gave the best description I ever saw. It is a lot harder to explain in writing than it is to understand if you just saw someone do it....at least I think I'm doing it "right." I think the book was called "Training Retrievers to Handle" or something like that.

    I really liked Vickie's last article. It addressed attitude & reading your dog & how important that is to training a dog who works stylishly. Wasn't a nuts & bolts "how to" training article in terms of drills, etc., but there was a lot packed into it and she seems to really have the dog at heart. (okay-namby pamby, but that's important to me!)

    Which is why Retrievers Online is such a fantastic subscription!
    I do enjoy Evan's writing about dogs and training.
