Post by admin » Fri Dec 10, 2010 3:34 pm

OK. So I'm bored at work...Steve's out in the field doing "research & development," (which means he's hunting AGAIN) so I want to do something FUN!

Why this DVD SET?

I saw a few posts for that in WANTED TO BUY. If someone wins and they already has this, or wants something else, they can have anything at of equal or lesser value instead.

Gun Dog Supply's Steve Snell says:
Perfect Start / Perfect Finish is over six and a half hours of training footage

This DVD set covers everything you need to do to finish a pointing dog, with one exception. The only thing it is missing is the "trained retrieve."

PS/PF is great for beginners because it shows multiple dogs at the beginning of their training. You get to see them begin and see how they react to situations multiple times. You can watch the same dog get introduced to pigeons and see how he reacts. Then you get to see him the second time he sees a bird and the third.

It's a pretty neat idea. It's also very obvious that these dogs are not trained "movie stars." They make mistakes and have bad reactions to things the first time they see them. Just like you will with your dog.

Perfect Start / Perfect Finish is our first recommendation in the line of pointing dog DVDs that we sell.

The Perfect Start / Perfect Finish 5 Disc DVD Set

These videos feature Jon and Cindy Hann, owners and operators of one of the most successful pointing dog training facilities in the United States. They are trainers of numerous Champions competing in all breeds and disciplines of the field trial world: Amateur, Open, Walking, and Horseback. Jon and Cindy are also trainers of countless hunting companions from all over America.

"Tired of whoa posts and barrels? Tired of videos showing already trained dogs in "mock" training situations? Tired of videos that only show the select best dogs? In this video, we don't pick 'em, we just train 'em!" -- Jon Hann

"The Perfect Start" video teaches with in-depth explanation and live training examples of all key points of starting your bird dog. Understand how your dog learns, teach here, heel and whoa, and evaluate your dog's natural abilities. Understand why your dog does the things he does and how this affects training. Use the introduction to birds, backing and guns. Learn how to enhance natural pointing instincts, and encourage the natural retrieving abilities in your dog. This video also shows the proper use of the electronic collar.

We do not recommend using the "The Perfect Finish" without first completing The Perfect Start."
