Retriever Training Videos
Our dog training videos specialize in filming dog training in Real Time.

Definition of Real Time: the actual time that it takes for a process to occur. We show the process of training a dog who has never been worked before, so you can see the progression from session to session. It is much like a slow motion picture of a flower beginning to bloom.

Revised Edition

Bill teaches and reinforces the SIT command at a young age as part of his retriever puppy training. He then contrasts this with massive amounts of excitement. These combine to create an absolutely rock steady retriever at a very young age. Bill calls this process the "Traffic Cop." The Revised Edition shows 3 different retriever puppies being trained in front of the camera. This method works beautifully with a Labrador Retriever, a Golden Retriever or any breed that you want to teach to be a great retriever.

"Everyone who starts a working retriever puppy needs to know about Bill's Hillmann's traffic cop.It's an easy and effective method for getting a young puppy started on steadiness and marking."
- Mike Lardy

What are Fundamentals?  Since I finished filming I have  been thinking more about fundamentals as I view the subject. .. . for me it's really a time when you develop the way a dog is. …  From the time you first start training a puppy and on thru basic training,  you are molding what the dog will be like.

What could be more important?

Essentially, the process of training, not just commands and concepts,  is the procedure of creating attitudes like courage, enthusiasm, dedication,  passion for work etc.  So, because of this, I pay very close attention to  making sure that the dog, as he goes thru this development,  thinks and believes that retrieving is a wonderful game, and that it is fun.   To summarize, Fundamentals are far more than the Basic Skills.  It is during this time that the dog develops and how he becomes  the dog that you want him to be.

One of the key things about Fundamentals is that during this time it’s important that the dog progresses in his marking as well. During this part of training Bill likes to do at least what he calles “walking marks,” where you make the dog sit, you walk out a ways, say “sit” and throw a mark and send the dog. Bill likes to do literally hundreds of these. They start short and can progress up to perhaps 100 yds away from your dog. While you are working on Fundamentals make sure you inject lots of marks, flyers, birds, dead birds, pigeons, ducks, chickens . . . . . . . a lot of marking in conjunction.

To Bill, during Fundamentals is when you are designing your dog’s character, you are giving him his skills. If you do it right, you are developing every good trait that your dog was born with. It’s during water training you can make a dog great or make a dog less than great. You are developing the right attitude that allows your Fundamentals to progress at a better rate. These are attitude marks so that when challening marks come up the dog has the right attitude to deal with them.

Summary: Fundamentals in the water gives you a chance to make a great dog and it’s important that they have the right attitude and to keep that attitude in the right place.. One of the ways you do this is by a constant amount of marks that bolster and create the right attitude. Almost every day after training Bill likes to take the dog and just stroll around and wait for little situations to arise, spend time, nobody else around, you and your dog, these are the magical moments. Thousands of marks, do you think that would help their marking to have thousands of marks?

The subject of this production is teaching the Fetch command. The common term for this is force breaking. A number of years ago Bill decided to work on a process to use the electric collar to reinforce the Fetch command AFTER he has taught force fetch, in a teaching way.

Remember the electric collar is used to reinforce a command they ALREADY KNOW.


Chapter 1 Getting Started
Bill shows the training level he likes the dog to be at before starting to teach Fetch.

Chapter 2 TEACHING
Fetch Bill shows in consecutive training sessions how he teaches the Fetch command in his golden retriever training session.

Chapter 3 Fetch - with Reinforcement
Bill shows in consecutive sessions how he reinforces teh Fetch command with the collar.

A Golden Retriever female "Torch" is introduced for her first public appearance.

We start by teaching the dog to sit with minor distractions as to tossing a bumper on the ground. The "sit" command is reinforced with the remote trainer. It's done in such a mild way the dog doesn't realize he's being taught anything.
