There are lots of posts on various forums that indicate many have used the Bill West silent approach to training and really like it. Training tapes and dvds of this method seem to be few and are not clearly advertised.
Thus far, I have become aware of the Bill West Bird Dog Training DVD, Teaching Labs to Point offerred on http://sales.uplandbirddog.com/
for $34.95 + $7.50 S&H.
Also, just found one other source, Brad Higgins" <firstname.lastname@example.org, that is offering "three DVD's taped at the West/Gibbons 3 day seminar April 29 through May 1, 2005. These DVD's include the entire seminar, a total of 8 hours. These DVD's are uncut and unedited. The first one is about 1 1/2 hours long and includes the force fetch session. The second and third DVD's are sold as a set and include the rest of the seminar (6 1/2 hours)" Price of the force fetch dvd is $49.95 + $4.50 S&H. The two dvd set of the rest of the seminar is priced at $79.95 + $4.50 S&H.
Are there any more dvds on the subject? If so, where are they available?
Since these training resources are somewhat pricey, I would appreciate feedback from those of you familiar with the products. Is the less expensive Teaching Labs To Point dvd comprehensive enough? Is the content of the seminar dvds that much more extensive? What would be the best investment?
Is the West force fetch method much different from the typical methods?
Any feedback on this will be appreciated. Thanks.
