Think this is the BEST video on a step by step intoduction to a formal training program that I have found. Rick takes the time to show what actually happens when dogs are put thru a basics program.
Refusals, disobedience, and all the things young dogs really do in training.
Rick shows how to properly deal with these issues in a calm, consistent manner, reminding viewers not to get frustrated. Also gives a timeline but reminds viewers that all dogs are diffrent, and be through.
This is very important footage for a novice trainer.
Your average guy with a new puppy should be able to follow the steps and put together a very nicely trained dog for hunting.
Building a solid foundation for advance work and Test/trials if that owner should so desire.
As a matter of fact, I will be sending this out with each puppy that goes to a novice owner/trainer.
