    Default How to FF - articles by Amy Dahl...part I and II

    Because FF is the most often asked about subject I am posting up links to these two articles. They are both very in depth and informative...

    even harder to do if you have heard only 'pinch his ear til he grabs it' as your guideline. Amy gives a very thorough description, that is easy to understand (it was for me, anyway)....

    I ff my first 4 dogs without ever having anyone show me. I had only the written word to go by and enough dog training experience to be able to read my dogs.... did I do it perfectly? heck no...were my dogs enthusiastic and happy retrievers? heck yeah!

    Alaska isn't exactly the easiest place to get one on one help from someone with experience ffing ......If you don't live in Anch/Valley, Fairbanks you are most likely not going to since those are the areas where the 'professionals' live and the 'dog' clubs are. Thank goodness there are also now DVD's that show the process.....

    FFing is not for everybody, I'd definitely agree to that.

    Default Seminar ??

    If there is enough interest I'm willing to conduct a hands on seminar.
    I have 4 dogs going through FF right now with two others coming on in about two weeks. So I can show different dogs at different stages.
    Those that bring there own dogs will get hands on getting started.
    I'll cover hold, retrieving with pressure(force-lip and ear pinch), stick pressure, ecollar pressure, ladder fetch, proper delivery and force to pile.

    That is a great offer Baron, I don't know how a 'newbie' could turn that down.

    Baron sign me up!

    Even if I don't bring Autumn (she is getting spade on the 24th next week) I will greatly appeaciate the opportunity to view the process in person.

    As you know Autumn is overly excitable and is still hard to deal with when people and dogs are around her.

    I think FF for her is going to be a one on one no distractions training.

    Woody, where are you located?
    Ak Ray, I'll keep you posted as I here back from others.

    Training one on one won't be a problem if needed. I'll assign you some homework so that what I show you can be practiced.

    Before Force Fetch, we need be thorough on our obedience. Heel, sit and come when called at a minimum.
