I was in your shoes about a year ago. I researched and narrowed down to a few different programs. “Lardy, Hillman, Fowel Dawgs, Dokken, SmartWorks,” I chose SmartWorks. I have been pleased with the decision, as mentioned above Evan is on RTF all the time helping with questions. All the programs have the same goal just slightly different methods to achieve that goal. The biggest thing is try your best to find someone to train with………….. That will be worth more than every DVD on Gun Dog Supply.com!!!!
