    Default what is the best retriever training dvd??

    Just got my new pup and wanting to start watching some videos on training him. I have water dog now but was going to see if there is any new ones out with better training material or any that are better then it. I have been looking at the avery dvds but wasnt for sure about them i couldnt find much on them. If somebody has used one of them or any others i would appreciate the advice. I will be training my lab for duck and dove only no upland or field trials.

    Sound beginnings by Jackie Merten or Bill Hillmanns puppy DVD is probably your best bet then move on to something like Mike Lardy, Evan Graham, or the Fowl dog series. You'd have a very sound pup either way. Good luck with your pup!

    yup x3 and Mike's banner is the brown one on top of page here. Lots of great reading to do now while the pup grows. Tips and stuff, you can spend an eve on that site. And the vol 1 of the printed stuff is a must have!

    also looking for videos for when he gets older or should i just try to get all the fowl dawgs and follow them. sorry for all the questions. nobody around here trains their own so this is my best bet for opinions.

    YBS Media for Lardy and Mertens. Gundogsupply.com has lots of videos including Fowldog and Smartworks. Hillman has their own sales outlet.

    There is lots of information on this site on the various programs if you will do a search.

    I have a pup coming in mid-April and have been reading a number of books and this forum like mad for the past 2 months. I have Evan's Smartworks Puppy DVD, Jackie Merten's puppy DVD, am in the middle of Bill Hillmann's video and just received in the mail Mike Lardy's complete program including all three volumes of his books. All are very good but as has been discussed on this forum it doesn't make sense to re-invent the wheel... select a program and follow it. Read as much as possible, select one that you think best suits you and follow it. Good Luck!
