Black Lab. Hunts. It is a good DVD that thoroughly covers the aspects of Force Fetch but it shows NO steps on how to teach your dog the HOLD command. He basically says get a paint roller and put it in your dogs mouth and then goes straight to the dog holding while on leash. Not too sure why the HOLD training was left out.

Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. It's a good video. I could have saved money and got the same information for free elsewhere online. I.e. YouTube.

Hunts. I was hoping to find new helpful information on the DVD set to correct problems I am experiencing which I didn't. If you know the basic process the videos aren't a real help with any other specific issues. If you don't know the basic fundamentals I think it would be difficult to ascertain from the videos.

From Evan Graham, author of retriever training books SmartFetch and Smartwork Vols. 1 and 2, the SmartFetch DVD is a complete video guide on how to correctly Force Fetch your hunting dog from start to finish.
Force fetch is more than just one thing -- it is a definable process with clear goals, but within the process are several steps or phases.
Mouth habits include such important items as fetching on command, even when your dog may be distracted, moody, or any number of things that might interfere with compliance. Sure, you may get away for years without having such problems but being smart and being lucky are not the same thing. Force fetch gives you a tool to handle this when it comes up, plus some insurance that it is less likely to come up because of this training.
The entire Smartwork force fetching system from hold to force to pile!

However, to allow ease of learning and a fuller understanding of the material, we provide a growing collection of DVD modules of the system. Each DVD module offers the most detailed and graphically illustrated explanation of the steps of development for your retriever available anywhere! We include all the sequential steps and tips you'll need to do your own training with your dog, and to develop him or her to the highest level you desire.
In addition to this, in future DVD productions we will be presenting even more instruction beyond that which is contained in our books. Handling, marking, practical hunting applications, and competition-based instruction are all proposed for future productions.
The cost of each item has been kept at an affordable level to allow you to expand your library of information at your own pace while giving you the information you need to enjoy the pride of having done it yourself! This will continue to be our commitment to you.
NOTE: Because it is important to me that my system is presented as it is intended to be used, we shoot all our own video, and do all our own editing and DVD production. No non-dog trainers participate in this process, and that has allowed each presentation to be geared toward the trainer exclusively. No aspect of our information has been watered down, modified, or omitted because of production concerns. Every effort has been made to assure that this program is enjoyable to watch while sparing no effort to provide extensively detailed instruction.
