Retrievers

Basic obedience for retrievers: SIT, HERE, HEEL, KENNEL along with place training for SIT. Lead work in the yard is completed along with Force Fetch training before E-Collar training is started with the dog.

 

Introduction to the force fetch training table: once the dog is comfortable working on the table Force Fetch training starts with the introduction of the HOLD & GIVE command. Once the dog will HOLD for prolonged periods and understands the GIVE command, ear pressure and the FETCH command is introduced. This is where all the building blocks of the formal retrieve are put together FETCH, HOLD & GIVE.

 

E-Collar Conditioning for Retrievers: the E-Collar is introduced after the dog completes the Force Fetch program. It is our belief and experience that the dogs better understands how to turn off the E-collar pressure when they have completed Force Fetch training prior to E-Collar conditioning. The E-collar is only used to reinforce commands that the dog has been trained to understand, it is never used to teach. We teach the dog to turn off low level E-Collar stimulation by completing the command. The drills used to E-collar condition are the same taught during Basic Obedience training.

Pointers

Basic obedience for pointers: WHOA, HERE, HEEL, KENNEL along with place training for WHOA. Lead work in the yard is completed along with Force Fetch training before E-Collar training is started with the dog.

 

Whoa Training: The WHOA command means to stand on all four legs until released. The introduction to the WHOA post is started after the dog has finished its basic obedience training. This drill is the foundation for pointing dogs and to ingrain this command in the dog many sessions are spent on the whoa post teaching the WHOA command. The drill prepares the dog for E-Collar reinforcement after completing E-collar conditioning.

 

Force Fetch for pointers: Introduction to the force fetch training table. Once the dog is comfortable working on the table force fetch training starts with the introduction of the HOLD & GIVE command. Once the dog will HOLD for prolonged periods and understands the GIVE command, ear pressure and the FETCH command is introduced. This is where all the building blocks of the formal retrieve are put together FETCH HOLD & GIVE
