I will be getting a pup here in a couple of weeks and have been doing my homework on the training process that I am going to follow. My question is.

Hillamn FF's with the electric collar, Lardy does the ear pinch. At the beginning of the Lardy Video #1 would you just implement the collar instead of the ear pinch to make sure it is solid, or would you skip this step and go right into stick fetch?

Would you actually do the stick fetch or use the collar for the pressure instead?

Thanks

Hi Tjengle,

The force fetch method shown in "Training a Retriever Puppy - with Bill Hillmann" is for a very experienced trainer, and the method shown in "The Fetch Command" is for the inexperienced trainer. In it Bill shows consecutive training session for to TEACH the fetch command, and then consecutive sessions how to reinforce the fetch command with the electric collar. Here is an article written by Dennis Voigt in ONLINE Magazine that describes the force fetch topic at length:
