    Default RETRIEVER TRAINING with Judy Aycock and Danny Farmer---WOW!!!

    For years I've wondered why there hasn't been a legitimate video done over the process of Force Fetching a well rounded retriever. WELL IT'S HERE, and in a BIG WAY!!!

    I just had the chance to finally preview my new (long awaited) training source "RETRIEVER TRAINING with JUDY AYCOCK and DANNY FARMER, produced by ReelRetrievers. What a cool DVD. In my opinion this video will come to serve as an excellent source for the common amateur training his/her retriever for hunting, hunt tests, or even field trials.

    The DVD is a fantastic step by step program for all trainers from the novice amateur to the seasoned pro. The video covers topics on reconditioning the basic commands of "sit', "come", and "heel" all the way thru "forcing to the ground". One of the neatest (brilliant) segments of the DVD is that the "hold" and "fetch" commands are done by 2 complete novice amateurs. As the video progresses Judy and Danny, 2 of the most successful trainers in Retriever Trial history, complete a HANDS ON step by step process of Force Fetching a Retriever to the ground. It amazes me how these two incredible trainers break down the Force Fetching process making it so simple that even a beginning, yet determined, amateur can take a young dog from "sit" to "fetch".

    I do wish that I had the opportunity to use this type of program 22 years ago when I first stepped up to the challenge of forcing my first dog. I was so lucky to stumble upon the DVD on Danny's website www.dannyfarmer.com. This is a great opportunity for people like myself (school teacher) to save a ton of money in getting my dog forced under a solid program taught by two greats of the game!!!

    Check it out!!!

    Dustin,
    The DVD is different from the "Basics" in that it is much more detailed with TONS of HANDS ON with the dogs. You see much more of the progression. I have both, and believe that this new Force Fetch DVD is fantastic AND WELL WORTH TRYING.

    Is it done with beginner dogs ? Seems that that would be better than dogs that were already trained , to show the viewer the problems and pitfalls of FF a green student.

    Where can you get it?

    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

    Yes Jay, the dogs are beginner pups that are initially handled by completely novice trainers during the "hold"/"fetch" segments.
