Retriever Training Videos

These are a few videos on training hunting retrievers that I think are pretty decent. The first video shows the beginning stages of force fetch. The trainer starts off with the dog on the table. The second video shows a later stage of force fetch, known as "force to pile." These are the beginning stages of the dog retrieving not just because it is fun, but because it is his job. And through force fetch, as Judy Aycock says, you are showing your dog how to respond to pressure and you are developing tools that will help your dog advance through his retrieving training. This is applicable for hunting, hunt tests, and field trials.
