Customer Review #27280

By: Patrick Nordquist From WA

It's kind of early to really get a complete picture since I haven't had it very long, but I did read it and it seems like a balanced approach in practice. The part on how some have left the heeling stick as a tool and gone to the newer, more flexible e-collars was an example of how he doesn't present a method as the only way to do it and I appreciate the need to demonstrate flexibility since every dog is different and needs to be handled accordingly. Also, he clearly doesn't advocate being cruel or heavy handed, which is nice.

Evan Graham's groundbreaking book SmartFetch examines the history of force fetching dogs, its goals and purposes, while laying a solid foundation for a fully trained dog. All obedience issues associated with it are fully explained, plus all phases of the program, from the teaching of "hold" all the way to Water Force. No book has ever been so complete in its discussion about, and instruction for, doing it yourself.

  • Spiral Bound
  • Laminated Covers
  • BW Illustrations / 120 Pages

    Contents:

    Introduction
    Chapter 1 "Heel, Sit, and Here"
    Chapter 2 Force Fetching
    Chapter 3 "Fetch" Compulsion Begins
    Chapter 4 Collar Conditioning
    Chapter 5 Force to Pile
    Chapter 6 When things don't go like the books & videos say they should go!
    Chapter 7 Water Force
    Chapter 8 What good is all that forcing, anyway?
    Index
    The Reality:

    First of all, 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. Those steps will be laid out later, but first let's examine the goals.

  • To establish a standard for acceptable mouth habits
  • To provide the trainer with a tool to maintain those habits
  • To provide the trainer with a tool to assure compliance with the command to retrieve
  • To form the foundation for impetus (momentum)

    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.

    Along with compulsion issues we need to mention a proper hold, and delivery on command. If my pheasant is punctured I want it to be from pellets, not teeth. That actually covers some ground in all of the first three categories.
