Nationally renowned Professional Bird Dog Trainer and Field Trial Hall of Fame Member Delmar Smith of Edmond, Oklahoma, explains his method of training pointing dogs. In the first installment of Delmar's training DVDs, Delmar (assisted by sons Tom and Rick Smith) explains the bird dog basics including introducing 8 week old puppies to the field, tying a bowline knot in a check cord, and making and using a "chain gang." He also covers teaching a dog to be steady to wing and shot and to mark his birds down.
Yard and Field Training Volume I includes teaching "all right", "here", "ho", "birds", "whoa", "sit", and "heel" using a 20' check cord, a pinch collar, a whoa post, and a pigeon on a hose. Also included on this DVD is a bonus short story about a dog and his best friend with feathers, featuring 8mm home movie film from 1955.
