Retriever Puppy Training -- The Right Start For Hunting By Clarice Rutherford And Cherylon Loveland



By: T T From Tennessee

Hunts. Family pet.



Teaching commands one step at a time and thoroughly ingraining each command through repetition is classic, and it works. But I just cannot accept using an EC (electric collar) to train a puppy. I've seen many really great hunters and amateur field trial dogs that never saw an EC. Any puppy with the right genes, instinct and desire should be trainable and perform as a hunter and amateur field trial dog without EC. Without those traits, forget it and DO NOT perpetuate those genes in the working dog gene pool! Once the dog is a thoroughly trained 2 yr old, reinforcement or correction with EC is a valuable tool. Remember, you don't have to be smarter than the dog to train it, you just have to have more time than it has.

Product Rating: 3 out of 5-stars.
