    Seminars are fine but if you don't put to use the info you learned it's a wasted trip. Just imagine the results you could have if you could train with people that had knowledge like that everyday. I know people that go to all the seminars they can but they return and are excited but still train the same as they always have. Being consistant is the key with good habits everyday. Find people in your area that have a clue/success and you'll probably think your at a seminar everyday...Randy

    That is the ideal world, Randy - unfortunately, many of us don't live there. For us, the videos and seminars from proven people are a great resource to fill the gap.

    He called it a pop up drill. I believe it was discussed on here before, let me see if I can find it.

    I agree Randy. When I started with retrievers 15+ some years ago I surrounded myself with as many good amateurs and pro's as I could. I've been to 10+ different seminars over the years with guys like Lardy, Romein, Volstead, Rorem etc and certainly learned a lot. However it was in the field working, watching, working gun stations all day where I really learned. When you first start out, nothing is better than the hands on.

    This isn't the drill we did, there were no marks thrown.

    I think what might be really cool about the Rorem seminars as that what you see at one will keep changing.

    I learned a lot from the commentary about each dog running the same setup. Each dog-handler did things in their own way, so there was a lesson about handling every time a dog stepped to the line. I never once felt like I could have just stayed home and watched his DVDs again.

    Great discussion. Several good threads here lately that get you to scratching your head and thinking.

    In principle its the same drill. This version appears to be quicker due to the dog not picking the two marks. When you actually throw the marks you also get an opportunity to demonstrate the dogs selection capabilities...
