In the blog we write about  the book, clicker training and our thoughts about gun dog retrieving and field trial training.

Casting training for rookies

Casting training for rookies

Working on directional skills and casting is so much fun! Being able to send the dog to run straight out from my side, to the left or right, or to turn and run in the opposite direction (push backs) feels awesome and fun. If you want to be able to trial with your...

“Time to prove yourself!”

“Time to prove yourself!”

Imagine that you are taking a class with your dog. Some of the participants are very experienced, others have some experience, someone is completely new to the whole thing, have just begun this training and are new owners of a retrieving breed. Some know each other...

Just laugh it off

Just laugh it off

One of the most important building blocks in our training philosophy is that we are looking for the good stuff that the dog does so that we can reward that. There's something a little magical about that, because it rubs off on everything. Suddenly you notice that...

Piece of Cake

Piece of Cake

It took almost six months before the day came when Flippa did not listen to the recall whistle, but simply ran in the other direction – towards the cat poop. I was surprised – I had become so spoiled by almost everything coming so easily with this dog. Never...
