    Men of Steel is a complete course in vastly expanding your resources in retriever training. Smartwork author Evan Graham demonstrates the wide range of uses for these highly versatile tools in training puppies, as well as dogs in the basics, transition, and advanced stages of training.

    The course also includes demonstrations of how even the pure hunting retriever can benefit from training with one of the most useful tools in the retriever trainer's arsenal: the Stickman.

    This video covers all aspects of field use, marking concepts, key concepts, configurations for land and water, and adaptations for blind work. Also includes illustrations of the types of throws to make conceptual marking even more effective for gun dogs, hunt test dogs, and field trial retrievers.

    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 video modules of the system. Each video 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 video 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 video 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.
