    If you're a Hillmann Fan I'd go Hillmann all the way. Pup > Fetch > Basics

    I've had the opportunity to check out his fetch command and liked how he presents his information and how he shows a puppy going through it versus a dog that has already been taught.

    I watched Lardy's TRT disk 1 today and was not nearly as impressed granted I only train my dogs for hunting. I found there wasn't much detail but I've got the articles on order so I'm guessing that will provide more support.

    Can't wait for the basics video.

    In using TRT myself I found that until you had read the materials and watched the accompanying video at least 5 times I had no idea just how much was actually going on in the sessions. I'm still seeing new stuff as I read through it.

    Update....

    Greetings,
    Well, sometimes things work out better than you
    think they're going to.

    The new basic training video has been shipped

    to us from the replication company and will be

    in Caldwell, Texas on Tuesday December 11th.

    This is the land portion of basic training and
    it is a documentary about going through the
    training steps from start to finish.
    This is not a lecture on how to teach each part
    but the actual training of specific dogs.
    I'm showing, on this DVD, that I believe it is possible
    to increase desire and mold character while teaching
    a dog to learn the skills needed to go forward
    as a complete retriever. So, I've demonstrated
    how to teach the concepts and skills while building
    desire and confidence. This DVD will concentrate on land.
    The water fundamentals are already filmed and we are
    working on getting them out as soon as we can,
    but at least we have the land section ready now.
    Please check out www.hawkeyemedia.net for more info.
    Thanks a lot and keep me posted,
    Bill

    I just received the Basic's DVD yesterday and had the chance to watch a little bit of it. I really liked it and seem to really like how Bill presents the material and seems to make it enjoyable on the dog. I certainly like the way the dogs seem to react to his pressure and seem to love to enjoy doing the work. another great video. I am going to follow his process from start to finish with my new pup coming in the next couple months. We'll see how it goes. I've still got a few more of the TRT videos to watch but seem to enjoy watching Bill's DVD's more. I'm sure I would be happy following either program.

    I certainly would highly recommend his videos if there are folks out there looking.
