GSP. Hunts. Family pet. Very pleasant order- shipped quick and was in excellent condition just as described on the website. The DVD's are great! they take you step by step through training and they start with puppies that have no previous training so you get a feel for what actual training is like.

British Lab. I gave this as a gift to our son & family. They got a British Lab puppy for Christmas & my son requested your DVD for a gift. The plan is to train her for duck hunting. Sorry I am unable to tell you more than that.

Lab. Hunts. Family pet. Good material. Basic obedience is not covered in great depth, but force fetch is clearly explained. I am following the program step by step and I see great results.

Labrador. Hunts. Competes. Your service was great, and I appreciate the e-mails even though I don't purchase as often as I would like.

The Evan Graham DVD if you've seen it looks like a 12 year old filmed it. I was disappointed in the quality of film and the lack of enthusiasm. I've watched several different dog training DVDs that are almost worn out because I liked watching them so much, but not this one.

Wish I had tried the Lardy DVD- live and learn. I'll keep in touch though, I'm working on a duck/ dog website I would appreciate your opinion on in the next month or two. Thanks have a good weekend

  • Smartwork Obedience:

    Smartwork Obedience is a hands-on guide to formalizing obedience commands for working retrievers. It features step-by-step instruction with detailed video illustration of forcing techniques. It also covers fundamental obedience commands, including e-collar conditioning to here, de-bolt, heel, sit, kennel, etc.

    Smartwork Basic Handling:

    Step-by-step instructions and problem solving for all basic handling drills. This course includes trouble shooting for problems common to dogs going through T work, all in complete detail. Includes:
  • 3-handed casting
  • Mini-T
  • Single T
  • Double T

  • Smartwork Water Force & Swim-by:

    Water Force is the compelling and influence that causes the dog to enter the water. Water Force is the final phase of force fetch. Evan treats water force as a component of force fetch because water force training comes closer to that description. No matter how much your dog appears to love water, unless retrieving in water becomes a structured function, a lot of things can happen that impede efficient retrieving. Water forcing clears the air about typical problems dogs usually tend to run into, and provides a terrific co-benefit: They end up with an even better attitude about water than they began with!

    Swim-By is the controlled return of your retriever in water, during which the handler requires the dog to take a "more-water" return to enforce water/shoreline discipline. The dogs trained on this video are at the level of training where water force and swim-by would normally be taught.

    SmartFetch: (2 discs)

    The entire Smartwork force fetching system from "Hold" through force to pile!

    The SmartFetch DVDs are 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, or 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 due to this training.
    Smartwork is a system I developed over thirty years, and is presented in a multimedia format to provide the premier learning tool for aspiring trainers. The three books, Smartwork for Retrievers volume one; Basics and Transition, Smartwork II, Secrets of the Pros, and SmartFetch consitute the full system.

    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 be 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.
