Why do you need this DVD training series?

Everyone wants a dog they enjoy being around and are proud of. That is a reasonable expectation and something you can achieve if you make the commitment in terms of time and teaching good methods the way your dog learns.

Dogs and humans can become very frustrated during the teaching and learning process. Your dog needs structure just as any learning student does. That means you need to have a game plan. We have developed a process to follow that is very effective. Concepts must be taught in a step by step systematic way. If you teach in the right way you will motivate a dog and create confidence in them. Confidence creates success and they cant wait for the next training session with you. This is what we call the Success Cycle. This will instill a great work ethic in your dog!

In order to become a effective trainer and handler you must learn how to think and communicate like a dog. Most people never really learn how to communicate with their dogs on their level the way they learn. We tend to try to relate teaching a dog the way we think and learn. That simply does not work for a dog. You must learn the fundamental language of dogs so to speak and the way they process information so you can teach concepts in a way they will understand them. This one skill will do more for your success and the results you have with your dog than anything else.

What we have to offer is a proven effective step by step training process that:

Provides you a way , a method, that will allow you to develop the skills that will prevent much of the frustration for both you and your dog during training sessions. This in turn will allow you both to progress through your training process smoothly.

Teach you how to think and effectively communicate with your dog. This is, in our opinion, the most critical and missing link in training programs. We show you how to accomplish this in detail in the chapter called the Golden Rules of Training as well as demonstrate these concepts through out the training series.

We show you how to build a strong foundation in your dog step by step. We cover all the basic concepts your dog needs to know from bringing pup home at eight weeks old to working birds in the field. We demonstrate how to develope the necessary skills in your dog so that they will be well behaved and responsive to commands you give them. With these skills in place you will have a dog that you are proud of whether you taking a walk in the park, hunting upland or waterfowl in the field or bringing home ribbons at events.

We show you how to motivate your dog to want to work with you by creating a Success Cycle.

PRG Leading The Way

We are leading the way as professional trainers by producing the Training The Pointing Retriever DVD Series. This is the only DVD resource available in the country today. All aspects of the project was approached and presented from a trainers perspective. The training sessions are dogs learning the concepts for the very first time. You will see what really happens during actual training sessions.

The set consists of four separate DVD's: The Puppy Pack, Force Fetch, Marking Basics and Upland Training Foundation. There is five and a half hours of demonstration on how to build a strong, sound foundation in your dog. With these tools in place your dog will have the skills necessary to effectively work with you as a team in the field.
