On Leerburg's Training the Retrieve with Michael Ellis DVD

I train IPO where force is primarily used in the USA. I have a 6 year old Cane Corso who is HIGHLY intelligent and highly motivated to "please" me. When I was introduced to the retrieve exercise, I was told FORCE is really the only reliable way to train the retrieve. Well, lets just say that when we tried to train him to retrieve, using force, he just laid down and took the force and was not having any of it. I gave my dog a couple months "vacation" from doing ANY retrieve work after this to hopefully help him to forget. After seeing that and feeling horrible about the sport, I discovered Michael Ellis' motivational retrieve videos and immediately started training the retrieve HIS way. All I can say is "WOW"!! Zeph was doing the full blown exercise with strong "holds' and no chewing by the end of one week with using these methods. Plus there is no anxiety, no chewing from anxiety, no tail-tucking, and he is HAPPY to do the work! I am a member of a Facebook page whose focus is protection sports with the Cane Corso and I ALWAYS brag about Michael Ellis' videos and methods and try to convince people to try these videos FIRST before using force on their dogs! I just want to say thank you for these videos and making my soul feel better about training IPO!!
