Thanks every body,
It comes up 3rd or 4th in my area. I don't see it in yours. There may not be a trainer nearby you so the keywords don't appear in the site.

surprised it didn't come up in the search then.
like I said, it does out here - must have to do with the traffic to the individual trainer's page
I met Fred about 7/8 years ago when my training partner had a Sit-Means-Sit training franchise here in the Seattle/Tacoma area. They were putting on a seminar. I picked Fred up at the airport. THAT was quite impressive. I walked in the airport looking for him and there he was with a 9 month old Mal. The pup was sitting on a frisbee waiting patiently for Fred to get his luggage. No leash, no collar. When Fred told the dog to heel, he stood up and picked up his frisbee and heeled along through all the people with baggage on wheels, kids, old people, etc. Fred is pretty interesting - at least that's how I remember the short visit. The next day at the seminar, he was pretty amazing. All sorts of people and dogs showed up - police dogs with their handlers, shy dogs, people/food/dog aggressive dogs. I think my lab was the only "normal" dog there that day. Not that the police dogs weren't well behaved - they were, just pretty excited about everything. They aren't the kind of dogs that lay around collecting dust. His demo included every dog there. I don't know where he gets his energy, but he truly was amazing to watch with dogs. His 9 month old Mal would not only retrieve stuff, behave perfectly in a busy airport, but would also "attack" the guy wearing all the padding on command, and then stop instantly.
But, like others have mentioned, it all depends on the trainer you deal with. I don't think they've cloned Fred, yet.
ahh good ol freddy

That whole nonstop nicking is what gets me i really dont think thats a good thing, I watched some videos and was wondering why the guy was using the nick button like he was sending a telegram, A little more intensity and and you dont have to burn them as much, Seems to me that a dog could get confused easily, I know it works but man when the dog you demonstrate is yours that you have been working with for years do you really need to nick them that many times?
If you all think you know better then you should be the ones with the national franchise, right?
