Have force fetched dogs in the passed with old school method of ear pinch and toe hitch but recently came across a thread about Bill Hillmans method. Thinking of trying Hillmans method but not clear exactly what his process is and why it would be better than old school method?

Like Hillman's method very much. Need the right dog for it to work. IMHO

I tried it on one dog, didn't feel the dog really got to understand pressure like they do with ear pinch/toe hitch. I put her back through a traditional FF and continue to use the ear pinch/toe hitch method prior to a collar on all the dogs I FF.

T-Pines I found the article on Hillmans method to be the best info yet. Thanks.

Mary Lynn what would you consider the right dog?
