Best training books or dvds for cheesies?

Postby tbar400 » Sun Feb 12, 2017 8:15 am

Hey everybody, new CBR owner and new at training a retriever from the puppy stage. She is nine weeks old now and I have purchased Tom dokkens retriever books and dvds. I'm wanting to get the best information I possibly can to give myself and my dog the best chance at succes to be a good house dog that doubles as a good waterfowl dog. I don't expect her to attain every title out there but sure would be nice to have a solid retriever. I'm considering buying the basic set smartworks DVD set with puppy from gds to add to my knowledge. I know chessies are a different dog than a lab and everything seems geared for labs. Any input would be excellent on some good things to pick up to study. I appreciate it in advance!

Take a good look at Bill Hillmanns' videos. They are low pressure and work very well for Chessies.

That's not the first time his name has come up. Quite the price tag for the full package at $540. Is it worth it to get the entire series or are some parts more beneficial than others?

Start with his two puppy DVDs. The Art and Science of Raising a Retriever Puppy, and Training a Retriever Puppy. He also has a lot of short clips on YouTube you can watch for free.
