    Default Question about Lardy's CC Video

    Some have recommended Lardyís CC video to me even if I were following a different program. Would most of you agree? if Iím using Smartworks or Fowl Dogs is using this video a good idea? At the very least itís not in contrast to the concepts, correct? I would not want to spend that money if I were not going to directly use the techniques taught.

    I think Lardy's CC would work well with the Fowl Dogs videos.

    Smartworks has it's own collar and obedience method. I wouldn't suggest to anyone to follow Lardy's cc with Evan's program. Probably an experienced trainer could but I wouldn't recommend it for a newbie.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Thanks for the reply. Is the difference in just the sequence of things or is the pressure applied differently?

    Fowl Dawgs and Lardy are very similar, I think one would fit into the other pretty seamlessly. Smartworks seems like a different system entirely with different drills, methods and sequences.
