Customer Review #8442

By: Lonny Heilman From PA

I've used this video with my last pup back in 1988. The training methods work but you have to be patient. DON'T rush him. Boy I miss her. I never thought I'ld find this video but thanks to gundog supply, I received it in 2 days. So far at 12 weeks of age, I think Magnus Magi of the Marsh is definitely a keeper. Thanks again.

Product Rating: 5 out of 5-stars.

Hunts. Although this is an older video, the information is ageless. One of the best videos I have owned for the Do it Yourselfer. Crucial points given at given weeks of what to do. I own many dog training videos, and this is still my favorite. I believe you should always watch more than one video because they all have valuable information. But if you're only going to get one, I highly recommend this one.
