    Here are a couple.



    For me, the video makes much more sense than diagrams, however.

    Donny, even the guy who came up with it and put it in a book, was not at all happy with the way the diagram came out! It is HARD to explain or draw. You really, really need someone to show you and walk you through. Not once, not twice, but a bunch of times. Guys help me out here, I cant remember how to spell the last name, Walters or Wolters, but the book is Training a Retriever to Handle.

    It's D.L. Walters, the guy who taught it to me in 1977 at his place. 'Wolters' was a very different guy.

    Is the book still available anywhere? I've googled and not found. I had to give the one I had back to its owner when I left SC. Sure would like to get a copy.

    I have done walking baseball for years .. I did one tonight a little while ago. Great for whatever ails you. In my opinion and I don't have any personal interests in it, Evans DVD is much better explained then D.L Walters, Training Retrievers To Handle, although a excellent book and Lardy in His early TRT reccommends it. It isn't as complicated as it looks in D L ' book it is better demonstrated by a experienced person or watch Evan's DVD in my opinion.

    Once in a while a copy pops up on Amazon, and on rarer occasion, eBay. Good luck. It's a fine book.
