    I prefer the British field dog and American show, I use a cattle prod and clicker.I dont force fetch, I force break.

    I dont like hunt test's because there is no competition ,I dont like field trial's because the Pro's wont let me win.

    I use Evan Lardy's Smart Total Retriever Trainer program sometimes, but only when I want to and use a lower case t drill that I designed.

    I've been doing a little squirrel hunting to help with the winter crazies. Good way to get the pup introduced to the outdoors!

    You'll get along fine here.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
