After many back and forth decisions, I need some veteran's help choosing a training method. I have the Smartwork Basics DVD set and also "Richard Wolters Trains Retrievers". My dilemma is that both of these DVDs are on complete opposite ends of training styles. Smartwork uses the e-collar, while Richard Wolters uses a whistle. I can afford to purchase an e-collar so money isn't the problem. I guess I just need help deciding which style a trainer with more experience would suggest that I use?
Thanks for the answers in advance!
