Last week, I had the privilege of participating in a three-day seminar organized by gundogbreeds.com, and what an incredible experience it was! Led by two distinguished professionals, Dave Walker and Ben Garcia, this seminar was an intensive dive into the world of gundog training.
On the first day, I had the honor of being Dave Walker's bird assistant. It was an invaluable opportunity to shadow him closely, assisting with dog training techniques while absorbing his wealth of knowledge. With participants from across the country, Dave provided personalized guidance to each attendee, focusing on their unique needs and challenges.
The following day, Ben Garcia took the reins, showcasing his systematic approach to dog training. With a clear step-by-step methodology, Ben's expertise shone as we worked with various breeds, from flushers to pointers. The seminar offered a diverse range of techniques and insights, ensuring that every participant left with a deeper understanding of effective training methods.
For those unable to attend in person, I highly recommend investing in Dave and Ben's instructional DVDs. Personally, I've found Ben Garcia's "First Steps" DVD particularly enlightening for laying the foundation of proper dog training techniques.
Whether attending a seminar or utilizing their instructional resources, Dave Walker and Ben Garcia offer invaluable insights and techniques that can elevate your gundog training to new heights..
