Anyone willing to sell training DVDs or books?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I am looking for some new training material to watch or read and in looking around, most of them are pretty spendy....i know i know whats $40 when you have a $400 dollar dog and all the food, vet bills ect ect but I figure anymoney I can save is money made!

So I was just wondering if anyone had any DVDs or books they are willing to sell. Preferably any of the Smartworks series by Even Graham, the Fowl Dogs series, Farmer/Aycock or Mike Lardy (sp) series.....or anything else for that matter. If no one is willing to sell, I will just buy them new, but I thought what the heck, who knows! Thanks!

i've got pointers, versatile breed. so most of my stuff is geared for that. i'll dig though my stuff and see what i can come

up with. don't have anything geared for retrievers though. might take a couple days. take a look at that dog trainer that is on the learning channel or discovery that works with troubled dogs. his name is ceaser something, can't remember name of show.

he's really good with dog obedience and is worth a look for anyone that trains hunting dogs.

Have you checked your local Library? When I bought my dog last spring they had quite a few books and even some videos to check out. I even noticed our local video store has some that you can rent.

If your looking for a good training book for hunting goods, especially Labs, I would recommend Game Dog, by Richard A. Wolters. This is the book that I used to train my dog, the book costs about $20 you can find it on Amazon.com. I found the book really easy to follow it also gives some nice pointers for picking a pup out of a litter for future reference. There is also a DVD that goes along with this book but I'm not sure how much it costs, I found that the book was easy enough to follow.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
