This workshop will focus on non e-collar, minimum force training methods.
emphasis will be on the development of a fully trained retriever.

This will be a co-operative effort,with Paul Young,Frank Plewa, and possibly a third qualified trainer fielding questions and directing demonstrations. we will be using some of the attendee's dogs in the demo's. A questionaire will be mailed to attendee's so that we may tailor the content to suit and choose those dogs to be used in the demonstrations.

The dates are july 15 & 16, 2006. Dr. James Dean has graciously offered his beautiful property in Woodstock, Ct. for our use.

Cost is as yet undetermined. any profit after expenses are met will be donated to the retriever hall of fame at the national bird dog museum.

Those interested may contact Susan Wright, 12 hales hollow dover, ma 02030 or [email protected]rve.com
for further information.

A light at the end of the tunnel!! :) (That's a personal reference :roll: )

Seriously folks-if you haven't had the opportunity to train with either Paul or Frank-you don't know what you're missing.

I would go to a Lardy seminar (& will someday) even though I don't use a collar. Don't let the "Amish" throw you -good dog training is good dog training & you can apply what you learn even if you use a collar.

Wow...That looks well worthwhile even though I do use the collar. One of my dogs is very soft and trains much better using Amish methods. Plus I think the record of Paul and Frank's dogs speaks volumes of their abilities as trainers. What a great idea!

Paul. Count me in!! I'll email my contact info to MA.

Happy Hunting.

PS: Emmett is finally getting accustomed to the pup. Lines are looking a lot better on the blinds....and he even remembered that a sit whistle means "sit".

'Cause Amish is cool, of course.

It's nice to see that people are interested in this workshop. Over the past day and a half I've heard from people from 7 states and Canada. If you are interested in attending, please send your contact info to me by e-mail at [email protected] and I will add you to my e-mail list for when the cover letter and questionnaire are ready to go out.

I would like to offer my thanks to Paul and Frank for doing this workshop, and to Dr Dean for offering the use of his property. If nothing else, it will be a great weekend of good friends talking about good dog work in a beautiful and peaceful location. It doesn't get much better than that.

Being from Australia and having Mr Wonderful visit us twice from the US to hold non E collar seminars, I am totally fascinated.

What will be the additions to a normal training program? Will you be for example focusing on control (in drive) with younger dogs and maybe having higher standards with general obedience. Do non E collar users tend to do prolonged yard work and return to yard work more frequently compared with E collar users?

I have many more questions LOL.

Here are the reasons.

First, this is the first amish specific seminar to be announced on rtf. This seminar has been requested and suggested on rtf numerous times here on this board.

Second, I started organized dog games with frank and Paul as peers, and fellow non-collar trainers nearly 20 years ago with our now long deceased canine pals.

Third, the seminar has been over a year in planning and since its inception, I have had the standing offer that when it's time, I will make it a sticky on RTF.

Fourth, I have made stickies for several seminars on rtf for folks that I've never met before. All they had to do was ask!

Finally, I occasionally make something a sticky because it intersts me. I hope, when I do it, that a few others may find it to be of benefit. I guess I feel that along with some of the less fun aspects of managing this board, maybe I earn a rare chance to sticky a topic because it interests me. Please tolerate this sticky for a little while. It will be moved soon enough.

Sincerely,

The janitor
