Transcript from Steve's Video:

Today we're looking at the Tom Dokken books and DVDs. This is something that I waited for, for a long time, and Tom has got them released. They came out this year. And they are awesome. It is a very complete method and it's very step-by-step. And it's easy for anybody to understand.

Tom's method just makes a lot of sense. It's something that was developed over a long period of time. He's worked with a lot of dogs. And it just covers things the way that I like to see them covered. The best thing about it is that it's incredibly affordable. The videos are $15 apiece. So you've got a puppy, an intermediate, and an advanced. And then you've got two books that are around $20 apiece.

We've worked with Tom for years. Tom developed the Dokken dead fowl trainers. So it's something that we've been selling for a long time. We've been talking to him for a long time about putting about a training method. So it's something that we've really been waiting for.

What I like about it is that it's broken down in real simple steps. You can buy it as you need it or you can buy it all together. And you've got the advantage of having a book and a DVD that have the same methodology behind them, and that's hard to do. A lot of the books that we sell don't have any sort of videos that come along with them, and a lot of the videos we sell don't have a book. So, depending on how you learn, you've got everything covered.

I just like Tom's method. It's set up for hunters. It's got e-collars. It teaches everything that you need from start to finish. If you want a dog that is a pleasure to hunt behind, this is a really great method to use.

We highly recommend it. It's satisfaction guaranteed. If you are not happy with it we want it back. I can't say enough nice things about it. It's a wonderful collection and I highly recommend it for your retriever and your upland flushing dog. He covers both. So if you are looking for a method that's going to be easy to work with and give you a dog that you are real happy with in the end, check it out: Tom Dokken Retriever Training.

"This is the first book I have read by Tom Dokken. While the material is solid & helpful, the book is mostly photographic."

By: Stephanie Roberson-Thomas

Hunts. Family pet. Competes.

This is the first book I have read by Tom Dokken. While the material is solid & helpful, the book is mostly photographic. Quite frankly, I think it is too heavy on photographs & not heavy enough on actual teaching/content.

Product Rating: 3 out of 5-stars.

Many hunters consider their retrievers to be "polished" if the dog sits, stays, retrieves marked singles and won't run off. However, retrievers of every breed have so much more potential. This book condenses Tom's 40-plus years of dog training into a concise, easy-to-follow guide that helps you unlock the magic within your retriever. Working at your own pace, and with vivid visual instructions, you'll learn how to teach your dog honoring, multiple marked retrieves, blind retrieves over land and water, and much more.

Chapters:
  1. Equipment for the Serious Trainer
  2. Advanced Obedience and Force Fetch
  3. Lining Drills and Advanced Back Command
  4. First Blind Retrieve
  5. Advanced Marked Retrieves, Honoring and Other Waterfowl Skills
  6. Multiple Retrieves
  7. Advanced Upland Skills
  8. Retriever Safety Tips


About the Author:

Tom Dokken has more than 40 years of experience turning retrievers into successful field trial competitors, hunt test participants, waterfowling companions, and upland bird finders. Tom is the creator of the popular Dokken Deadfowl Trainer, and Dokken's Oak Ridge Kennels in Northfield, MN, is one of the largest all-breed hunting dog training facilities in the United States.
Tom Dokken has many talents, the greatest of which is his ability to take your happy, untrained dog and, weeks later, return to you a trained companion that's still happy.
