This is how it happens.99% of all training videos show a trained dog.

You never see how to deal with the problems you see with your pup...I do not edit to make me or the dog look good..I show real problems and how I deal with them..The dogs are not finished but in the actual stages in there training...

Training Retrievers..In this clip Dozer 7 months of age is in the 5 month gun dog training program..He is starting Force Fetch today..I show how to control and how to have your pup open his mouth and hold the training bumper on command…This is the hardest part of training for the amateur trainer to comprehend. There have been more dogs than not, ruined by the uneducated who just don’t spend the time to learn..The complete program will take dogs around 3-4 weeks to complete from Intro to finish..We are not teaching a retriever to retrieve. A finished retriever MUST hold the bird until they DELIVER TO HAND IN THE HEEL POSITION..They can not shake out of water, switch (Drop a bird and retrieve another bird on the return),eat or run off with the bird.
