The 3 BOOKS:
Smartwork Volume I: Basics and Transition features detailed, easy-to-follow instructions for retriever training, ranging from puppies through basics and early-to-mid transition. Illustrated by the author, this unique training text is designed for your use: It is spiral bound so you can leave it open to the section or diagram you are working on without breaking down the binding. Laminated covers help protect it from the elements. There are "Notes" pages with each diagram to help you track your dog's progress. Also included is a comprehensive Glossary of Terms to help you to get acquainted with the language of dog training. 188 pages.
Smartwork Volume II: Secrets of the Pros lets you finish your retriever the ways the pros do it by covering late transition through advanced training, helping you transform your "basically-trained dog" into a "fully-trained dog." It also includes tips on maintaining your dog's performance over his lifetime; field applications to help your dog relate his training to real life hunting situations; hunt tests, field trial preparation, plus troubleshooting the fully-trained retriever. Everything you always wanted to know about dog training but were afraid to ask! 236 pages.
SmartFetch is Graham's groundbreaking book that examines the history of force-fetching dogs and 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. 120 pages.
Smartwork is a system I developed over 30 years and is presented in a multimedia format to provide the premier learning tool for aspiring trainers. The three books, Smartwork for Retrievers Volume I: Basics and Transition; Smartwork Volume II: Secrets of the Pros; and SmartFetch constitute 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 develop him or her to the highest level you desire.
In addition, 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 is 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.
