    Default Duck Dog Basics Chris Akin

    Anyone used this DVD? I saw it for real cheap and picked it up. Saw some of his stuff on YouTube and he seemed good

    I saw DDB I.

    It's great at explaining the basics of OB and FF and gives some insight to how to socialize your pup and get pup ready for the next step.

    Haven't seen DDB II.

    I own them both. Like above said 1 is great for OB and the beginning of a good duck dog. 2 is more extensive and goes into hand signals, cheating etc. I really enjoyed both.

    I have them both. Seem to be really good if you are looking to train exactly what the title is, a duck dog. With the second video you could get a dog through started level. He is supposidly making a 3rd video that will be a lil more advanced than the last. Overall good stuff.

    +1 I also have both and would recommend them to anyone who asked about them. He trains every dog that goes thru his kennel the same way and with as many MH, HRCH & SRS titled dogs that he has trained im thinking if nothing else it is worth the watch and the price cant be beat. I think when he gets the 3rd video done he may well have the next complete training system being used for the develpment of hunting dogs and hunt test dogs.

    DDB1 and the TriTronics training book covered 90% of the training of my BLF. The best thing about Chris' videos is that they are extremely easy to listen to and he knows how to teach using laymen's terms

    Yeah I bought it because I got it for $10 brand new, and I heard he's easy on the dogs like hillmann which I'm fixing to being using so I figured it couldn't hurt for the price

    Easy to understand from one "Good Ol Boy" to the next!!! I used it as well!! Some on here dont see it as a well balanced system!! But when you can relate to one way better than another go for it!!!
