thought this was intersesting.
Yup...know all about it. My friends are training him. They just sent me that link in an email.
do you know what kind of training theyre using on him. I hope they arent force fetching, with shock collar.
Oh my gosh. :Originally Posted by mb05j
There is nothing wrong with force fetching if done appropriately. There is nothing wrong with an electronic collar either when used appropriately. They are tools to choose from among many. Have you trained a dog for field work?
Thanks for sharing that link...I love to see dogs that are successful in the ring show that they also have some drive to work!
Buzz has always been a retrieving fool. I thought he could have been doing this YEARS ago.Originally Posted by JacksAndLabs
I knew that comment about hoping they arent using a shock collar would probably set some people off, but I simply think that to start using a shock collar on a dog thats 9 years old and probably never was exposed to this more stringent type of training, might be a little much.

by 8pm there should be about 50 replies telling me how ignorant I am. oops
I do think that it is awesome though that buzz is doing this, and it goes to show that not all show dogs are fat and get tired walking around the ring.
That's so awesome! That picture of them in the canoe together is picture post card perfect. ;D
