    Default Rex Carr Training Picture


    Some have probably seen this but, in case anyone hasn't, thought I would post. Cleaning out boxes and found it in one of my old retriever magazines.

    I've seen the pic with him holding the duck and the one jumping up, but not the one of the released duck for them to chase.
    Very cool.

    I believe those pictures illustrate what he called "fracturing", which was a process providing a clean break for the dog(s) between training and down time. Ed would know for sure if I am correct in this. -Paul
    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.

    The way "fracturing" was explained to me by someone with first hand knowledge from Rex was don't express too much praise after a good job.

    Rex thought most over used praise so that the meaning to the dog was diluted but when it was indicated it should be delivered with enthusiasm.

    I was hoping to see a shot of Mr Carr, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and a trash can lid defensive shield. But those are cool.

    ...on top of his van.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
