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.

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.

I really like this video. I used the same video to break a chocolate male I had about ten years ago. We just got a new yellow puppy and I was panicking because I couldn't find my training video. You guys were the only ones that still had this video. If you go step by step with the video you will have a nice hunting companion and pet!

This is a great dog training video. I have used it in the past with our yellow labrador retriever, and I am now using it for our golden retriever. It has step by step training for your new puppy showing you how to turn your puppy into a well trained hunting companion.
