Rick Smith and Ronnie Smith are the products of bird dog training knowledge. Bird dogs have been a Smith family tradition for almost a century. Rick and Ron bring to you a lifetime of experience, including everything from operating their own public training kennels to guiding quail hunts in south Texas; training numerous National and International Champion Field trial winners, and helping thousands of people all over the world train their gun dogs via their highly popular seminars.
This video will give you an overview and outline of the Silent Command Dog Training System developed by the Smiths and used in their training programs, seminars and magazine articles in Pointing Dog Journal. It's called the Silent Command System because it is based on using the language your dog already knows, and verbal commands are not added until the correct behavior is being performed. They believe in a strong foundation of the basics building on the language and instincts that dogs already have. Using this system, your dog will learn more easily because he doesn't have to learn our language, and we will be eliminating the frustration that can result when dogs are pushed too fast and too hard.
The introduction to the Silent Command System covers proper use of the Stakeout Chain, Command Lead, Check Cord, Whoa Post, Reading Scent and Working Birds. You can then continue your training with The Silent Command System vol. 2: Intermediate which transitions from mechanical stimulation to using the remote e-collar.
