The perfect start?

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has seen this video. It is by perfection gun dog training kennels. Some people say it is great but it is also expensive. I was just wondering if any of you had seen it. I just got a pointing lab and looking for a good video.

Thanks

Kyle

I have it and think it is good. It uses dogs that have not been trained so you see them learning and making mistakes as they go. You also see things that don't go as expected - pup catching a bird, remote launcher not launching, etc. If you get it I'd recommend taking notes and watching it about 5 times as it's loaded with info and you'll pick up new tidbits each time you view it.

The equipment they use is variable intensity eCollar with continuous stimulation capability, check cords, remote controlled launchers, birds and more birds, and you'd need a training partner to be most effective.

I agree that it is a good video. Lots of info in it. There is also a few others to look into for pointers. Delmar Smith and Rick & Ronnie Smith both have great videos, but my favorite is George Hickox. They are all in the $50 range. Another good one is Ferrel Millers, but I could go on and on. I wish I still had all of these here, but over the years too many people "forget" to return them to me. It's funny though, I think I have about 5 training books nobody ever borrows.

Good luck, whoevers method you decide to use just stick with it.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
