Puppy Development Vol. I

Watch Rick and Ronnie Smith demonstrate how to start your puppy right.

This is not a puppy training video, but rather a video to teach you how to develop your puppy's behavioral patterns. Conquering behavior at a young age means a better behaved dog later. Working through the steps in this video will prepare your dog to listen to orders so that you can train him successfully.

Puppy Development reviews six opportunities to gain your dog's willing acceptance of restrictions which is necessary for training. This willing acceptance behavior will be demonstrated in six sections.

Chapters:
  1. Introduction
  2. Crate Conditioning
  3. Care & Maintenance
  4. The Table
  5. The Puppy Drag Line
  6. The Stake Out Chain
  7. The Short Lead
Puppy Development Vol. II

A puppy development program will prepare your dog for formal training. This is the second video in the series to teach you how to encourage your puppy's inherent hunting instincts. Working through the steps in this video will teach you to develop your dog's senses of sight, smell, and touch as well as encourage his desire to retrieve.

Puppy Development II continues the focus on conquering behavioral patterns in your puppy. It reviews four opportunities to build your dog's enthusiasm for training.

Chapters:
  1. The Field
  2. Birds
  3. The Retrieve
  4. The Gun
The Silent Command System of Dog Training Vol. 1

This video will give you an overview and outline of the Silent Command Dog Training System developed by the Smiths and used in their training programs, seminars and magazine articles in Pointing Dog Journal. It's called the Silent Command System because it is based on using the language your dog already knows, and verbal commands are not added until the correct behavior is being performed. They believe in a strong foundation of the basics building on the language and instincts that dogs already have. Using this system, your dog will learn more easily because he doesn't have to learn our language, and we will be eliminating the frustration that can result when dogs are pushed too fast and too hard.

The introduction to the Silent Command System covers proper use of the Stakeout Chain, Command Lead, Check Cord, Whoa Post, Reading Scent and Working Birds.

Chapters:
  1. The Silent Command System
  2. The Stake-Out Chain
  3. The Figure 8
  4. The Command Lead
  5. The Check Cord
  6. Puppy Development
  7. The Whoa Post
  8. Birdwork
The Silent Command System of Dog Training Vol. 2

This video continues from where the Silent Command System Foundation DVD leaves off. Rick shows you how to use the point of contact on the neck as a remote command with the e-collar. Transition from a command lead to the e-collar smoothly with the foundation training your dog already has. The goal is for your dog to hunt for you, not you hunt for your dog.

Ronnie covers the flank point of contact and shows how to properly place and use the e-collar on your dog. From a simple whoa command to backing another dog on point in the field, the purpose is to have a dog that is under control and accepting commands.

By using the Silent Command System, your dog will learn more easily because he doesn't have to learn our language. This eliminates the frustration that can result when dogs are pushed too fast and too hard.

The Silent Command System Volume 2 also includes Delmar Smith giving some of his lifelong dog training insight on correcting problems, along with a little history of John Proctor and the location where Rick and Ronnie closed this video.

Chapters:
  1. Rick and Ronnie
  2. Neck Transition
  3. Neck E-collar
  4. Flank Transition
  5. Flank Backing

Transcript from Steve's Video:

Today we're looking at the Huntsmith DVD collection. This is the Rick and Ronnie Smith Silent Command method. It's one of my favorites. I started training birddogs as a 10, 11 year old based on the Delmar Smith method. Delmar Smith is Rick's dad, Ronnie's uncle.

This is the continuation of the method that Delmar developed in his "Best way to Train your Gundog" book that was a classic for years. It is the Silent Command method mainly because they are not big fans of using all sorts of commands with your dog until the dog understands what's going on.

It's a complete system. They use what's called Point of Contact. Rick and Ronnie use e-collars exclusively in their method, so if you are not looking for an e-collar system this is definitely not the way to go.

The use low level continuous stimulation and they teach what's called Point of Contacts where they teach the dog that stimulation on different parts of his body means different things. They teach a dog how to walk at heel, how to come to you when called, how to stop. Their whoa post technique is my favorite way to teach a dog how to stop. It's hands down the most effective method that I've seen as far as low stress on the dog. Incredibly effective. When you do it with an e-collar you can actually stop a dog in the field for any reason whatsoever just really fast. Works great. I was amazed the first time I saw Rick do it with a dog. The first time I saw it was on one of my dogs and couldn't believe how fast he took a dog from having no idea how to stop to being able to stop with just the slight press of a button with a really low level stim.

It's a great technique. They have two puppy videos. The first one starts off with a very young puppy, teaches you care, basic table work, and real intro as far as just puppies. The second video covers field work with your puppies, getting them out in the field, introduction to guns, introduction to birds.

And then you've got the silent command method. You've got the first book which covers whoa post work using the Wonder Lead, working off of the chain gang. And then the intermediate video covers taking the commands learned on the rope and on the check cord and transitioning those over to using the e-collar.

It's a complete method. The majority of my dogs are trained with this method. It's one of my favorites. If you are looking for a great way to train your dog using a remote training collar, this is the way to go. It's designed for pointing dogs but it has applications for retrievers also.

Old school, but GOOD school
June 1, 2021
This is deffinatley an old school DVD set. I will say however that in the world of the internet where everyone has an opinion on what to do, and what not to do, this DVD set is simple and straight forward. I really appreciate the break down and explanation of the Silent Command system, which I have heard so much about.

Not really worth the price
April 28, 2021
I’m sure these gentleman are great trainers. However the production quality and their effort in producing these videos seems significantly lacking. The knowledge they impart is beneficial and so it got 3 stars.
Pros
  • Good information, it's obvious these guys are professional trainers
Cons
  • Most high school video productions are better, I feel the training is geared for professional trainers not your average dog owner.

Proven old school training using resistive methods to condition the puppy
Some may find these methods cruel.
When training groups of dogs these methods are best concerning time management.
However, it is my opinion you can talk to a puppy and over time to will understand.
Some of this understanding is based on the tone of your voice and body language, which the dog comes to know. You do have to let puppies whine until they stop, regardless of the training.
Giving into whining is the worst mistake you can make.
Pros
  • Great methods for trainers who train groups of dogs.
  • Solid proven cookie cutter results, for strong willed breeds like German Shorthair Pointers.
  • The videos set is worth getting if you need defined steps to develop/train for the first 2 years.
Cons
  • Old school methods that may seem cruel to some.
  • There are more than one way to train dogs, however the end game needs to be the same.
  • You can combine methods, both old and new,
  • New methods are less cruel they can be found on Youtube.

The Smith's have a great approach but it is not a complete training video. A bit scattered on the timeline for the pup. Need to couple the video up with a book like Delmar Smith's to get a chronologic order of progression.
