    do your video’s take the lesson thur a order that trains in a particular order?
    how do your video’s address basic train getting the dog down at a distance?

    • editorgeri says:

      Hi Pat
      The videos start with starting the young dog, triangle theory, teaching flanks and the in and out, driving and intermediate training, and obstacles and competition. You need to make sure that your dog downs at short distances everytime before you move onto longer distance. Young dogs are going to stop more likely when they feel they are in control. When you start to lengthen you need to keep moving towards your dog just to make sure if something goes wrong you are there to fix it. Thanks Shane

      That is the minimum time they would be available but in actuality it is much longer. We do not make them unavailable after a certain length of time.
