    I haven't yet, but I've only worked with a couple dozen so far. It's actually harder on the people than the dog. ;)

    Not true. It applies mental pressure to the dog. And I've yet to meet a dog that wasn't smart enough to learn to be still all by itself. So....dog is at heel, has happy feet. Dancing, moving,...

    Stay put and do nothing until the happy feet stop. Just stand there and wait him out. Once you get immobility, count slowly for a couple of seconds, then send him. It take patience, but the dog...

    Here means here. That's a straight line, directly to heel. Check cord first. (and this is not breed specific behavior. ;) )

    Valid concerns and all easily avoidable. We don't bother the dog when its eating, and it stays away from us when we're eating (crate or separate room). And if a toddler is wandering around dropping...

    A couple years ago, Dennis Voigt contacted me because he had a seminar coming up and most of the dogs signed up were Chessies. He asked if he could stop by and work with some to get a feel for what...

    Breed has nothing to do with it. It takes a dog all of maybe five minutes to eat. Let them eat in peace.

    Control comes before permission to eat. Have the dog sit, you put the food bowl down,...

    The Dogtra Edge RT definitely does turn on via magnets, no question. Nice part about that is no push buttons to wear out or fail.

    I own both. I prefer the Dogtra for one big reason: I am forever bumping the little toggle switches on the Garmin, and it bugs me to have to constantly check them.

    Thanks! It was fun having Tom Davis visit the kennel and quiz me on whistle stuff. :)

    I use it all the time, and as Jeff and Darrin have said, you have good control. When I do it I drape my hand in the mouth and over the jaw without holding the jaw, and just move with the dog if it...

    It depends on the dog. I rarely need to restrain at the post, and if I do, it's more for my safety than anything else. I'd say maybe only 1 in 20 needs the post, at least in my world. I do find...

    I think the bigger issue is what you're training for. I always try to be open minded and learn new things and I think any good trainer is much the same, but I also have to be able to put those things...

    While I do really like and use a lot of Bill Hillmann's training, I still use a table for FF. Not with every dog, some don't need it and work very nicely using the Hillmann method. Bill and I had...

    Lots of well known dogs in the lineage....but the lack of health testing would be a red flag for me. I'd proceed with caution...and might take a gamble if the pup was simply being rehomed or only a...

    Steve, the first time I saw the wonder lead used, I just shook my head and thought it was silly. I tend to be a skeptic. But the trainer part of me was curious enough to spend the (back then) $20...

    I wish I had bought Mason.

    The kennels you mention from Menards, TSC, etc. are all pretty much the same, and they will not last long term, except maybe for a one or two dog owner who uses them...
