    Good morning Jen, well at least it's morning here in Ireland. I have read with interest some of the comments on the forum. We have a saying here in Ireland, "The proof of the pudding is in the eating", or in this case, the watching. Watch and marvel as 'The Dog Guru' teaches how he trains his Labradors here in Ireland, without E collars, force, intimidation, or threat, as I said before, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Warmest regards, Harry

    don't mean to cast asperisions, but WHO in the USA sits a dog on his left side and send with his right hand ????
    Anyone who trained the send out as described in the Wildrose DVD published and widely sold in the US.

    There are also other differences in the send out than just hand position.

    Thank you, very kind, Mine's a pint.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Harry! Now lemme put you right on your mawkish marketing pitch. We 'Mericans - North 'Mericans, including one of your correspondents here who won the 2011 Canadian Amateur - have heard it all before and actually are amused by it. Of course, we'd be much more likely to buy a retriever training DVD made by Mr. Bean or, God rest his soul, Father Ted (with Father Dougal as protege). Thing is, the blarney don't wear none too well on us (or US). So the proof being in the pudding, when it comes to what Scott's asked about "the Dog Guru"'s FT credentials, is in your own peroration (marketing spiel) actually more akin to nailing Jello to a tree. One last thing: My UK intel offers the most d*mning indictment of all apropos a DVD "three years in the making:" "It's too bloody American." Crikey. Alas, s/he was referring to the bombast and razzmatazz on your end - as we say in the States, it's not the trainer, it's the dog. Or director.

    Cheers,

    MG

    PS Hey Eug, how 'bout that Albion! And a big Roll Tide, of course

    I don't know if it matters which side he casts his dog from? It just another way of training retrievers in another country for viewing. No doubt we will continue to do our thing and they their way!

    He has done a fine job marketing himself.,,, and he probably is a very good dog trainer also. You don't have to win the U.S National every year to be a very good dog trainer.

    There are good trainers all around the world. Most just don't have the time or resources to make a DVD. So Kudo's to those who can.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    I cast off dogs British style, because its the way I learned at first. My mentor has a lot of British training influence dating back to the 70's. And Eug, this was long before I trained with Mike or saw his videos!

    It's not just about using a different hand, it's about body language and how you heel/line the dog. For me, it's easier to line the dog using the British method.

    Are there two slots for addresses. Put your PO Box in one and your street address on the other. That's what I have to do. I don't get mail delivered to the house in my rural area.

    It just has one line. I don't get mail at the house either so I wanted to give the right address. I e-mailed them , just waiting on an answer.
