Hey,
how's she doing. I have never read any of them but have heard good things about Waterdog. I use Fowl Dawgs. I have the first DVD and its a good starter and its about time to go to the second volume. Let me know how she is doing. I sure hated to see her go.

I've used Water Dog... both the book and vid... and had I gotten it sooner than I did, I might have ahad a much better better retriever. Satie does what I need her to do... but not what I would like her to be able to do.

The next one will be started from page one.......

I had 3 of the first 5 and would use them for kindling after I bought and used the methods in #6. Although it wasn't really written for the amateur trainer. I then bought #7 and it is definitely one of the two best books written on the subject. I titled 2 dogs using the methods in each of the two and I am worse than the title of "amateur". I had a lot of help from friends in the local dog training club.

I think Milner has a unique way of getting through to the trainer that makes it easy.

All of the above is only my very humble opinion.
