    Great shots!! Makes me wish I was down south.

    I shouldn't ask, but...

    ...did the dog take the slice of water on the memory bird? He looks like he's "thinking right".

    I could easily be wrong, but based on how Danny is lined up and the dog...that fallen tree sure looks like it was placed with a purpose doesn't it!?!?


    And GREAT pictures by the way....although it's just making my winter that much longer when I see open water and then look outside and see snow/ice. But I'm a glutant for punishment..so keep posting them!

    He better have!! I trained that dog and just recently sold him to a married couple of Danny's clients. He was pretty easy to de-cheat. He has a great deal of talent. But time will tell!!!

    Nice pictures Frank.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    My thoughts too. The branchy end keeps them from getting in to fat also kicks them to the right.

    Frank, ya gotta answer Miriam's question, did the dog get honest or was he cheaty like he's kinda sorta lookin'?

    Watchm, if he was cheaty, my condolences; if honest, good training!

    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

    I was down at Danny's last week and Dillon (I believe that's his name) looked good in training.
