It has been said that you can get $5,000 worth of dog training lessons for around $100 with Rick Stawski's three-part Fowl Dawgs series of videos.
Fowl Dawgs1 covers all the essentials for teaching any breed of retriever the fundamentals from socialization and basic obedience to collar conditioning and quartering for upland game. Fowl Dawgs 2 shows how to force a retriever to a pile of dummies, do a mini-T and double-T, and train a regular and remote swim-by. And Fowl Dawgs 3 concentrates on all the transition blinds and drills to develop a finished hunt test and field trial winner.
