    I was in your shoes a year ago basic list till he's through Double T includes but not limited to:

    lanyard and whistle
    e collar
    10-15 orange 2" bumpers
    10-15 2" white or white/black streamer bumpers
    3-5 3" orange bumpers
    3-5 3" white or white/black streamer bumpers
    2-3 canvas bumpers
    48" leash/lead
    kennel
    30' floating check cord
    heeling stick
    wings of birds or better yet live pigeons and ducks
    .209 primer pistol
    choke or pinch chain
    2 collars. 1 for puppy to say 6 months the other an adult size
    maybe a few dokkens or ATB bumpers
    friends
    patience
    money

    not needed but strongly suggest if training alone:
    wingers or launchers with electronics
    ATV to reload above item
    Stickmen
    more money
    access to good water.
    Access to good land

    i thought I could get by with the basics and always wondered when I trained in groups early on why all this was needed. As we progressed I soon found out. You are doing it the right way by choosing a good reputable program though. It is fun and addicting
