    Not saying they do it better or necessarily know more than the US experts, I haven't even seen the DVDs, but I'll bet there are things to be learned from anyone who is successful at what they do. Especially if the scenery is REALLY pretty!

    I agree with this. I enjoy learning about training dogs from anyone. I own most of the well known training videos and have learned good things from all of them. I just ordered this one and will look forward to learning something new. Thanks for posting this.

    Yes, two of the pups from the video have made it. One has his FTCH and the other is a few points away. The 3rd and 4th dvds are the best in my opinion. I was actually sad at the end of the fourth dvd. Such a neat series.

    My only complaint is he really doesn't show a lot of cold blind work. There's a lot of shown blinds and lot of handling training, however. His dogs do handle very crisply and are very crisp on obedience. It really is a neat series from a newbie perspective.

    I was hoping you would chime back in. My copy is on the way... I am looking at two different bitches out of the FTCH dog in the video. They're 10 & 14 months now, and demonstrating great work. Keith really is a nice guy, and he really does produce some top quality dogs. Billy at Leadburn took one of the Copperbirch dogs to FTCH w/ relative ease, so I've heard.

    Wow, if the pups grew up with Keith and out of Ross, I'd bet they are a really nice dogs! He definitely knows dogs and is a great guy.

    Please let me know if you get one and how they turn out for you. Would love to see them.

    I think up until then Keith had never actually made a dog up to FTCH himself and did he definitely make that one up himself? I can't remember.
    He talks a good talk though (and he has bred some nice dogs that have done well in the hands of others.....)

    Are we talking about the man's credentials ,or the content of the videos?..You make your choice and you pay the money. What you get is what you get. What you do with it is up to you.
    Frankly,It doesn't matter a jot whether the man made up 1 Ftch ,Or 100.
    It would be the same for any pup you got from Lardy or Farmer stables.
    The videos show what the man does,not what titles he has won.

    Um....it matters quite a jot to a lot of folks. The question is does what HE does, produce champions at HIS game, with HIM driving. Can he play golf, or is the "guru" just a driving range pro? The answer to that question has an awful lot of bearing on whether "what he does" is worth a flip, or worth paying for, you know?

    It sounds like he has bred some FTCH's. The question is has he built one or more "from the ground up" using his training method that he is trying to get me to pay cash to view. Jots is Jots, as they say in 'merica.
