It's 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 Dawgs 1 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.
