Training Info

I can give general advice, but chances are, if I don’t understand your situation, it won’t be effective advice. It may even damage your training.


I need to know about:


The dog:


•What is the dog’s temperament?

•What kinds of drive does it have – food drive? play drive?

•What are the drive levels?

•What are the dog’s capabilities?


The trainer:


•What type of trainer are you? •What are you capable of doing? •Do you have any physical limitations?

•What are you comfortable with?


Your training situation:


•How good is your helper? •What is your helper best at? •What kind of tracking conditions are available?


Only once I have the answers to these and other questions, can I think about giving you advice about training your dog!
