Anyone willing to sell training DVDs or books?

Recommended Posts

beretta

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.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
