Evan treats water force as a component of force fetch because water force training comes closer to that description. No matter how much your dog appears to love water, unless retrieving in water becomes a structured function, a lot of things can happen that impede efficient retrieving. Water forcing clears the air about typical problems dogs usually tend to run into, and provides a terrific co-benefit: They end up with an even better attitude about water than they began with!Swim-By is the controlled return of your retriever in water, during which the handler requires the dog to take a “more-water” return to enforce water/shoreline discipline. The dogs trained on this video are at the level of training where water force and swim-by would normally be taught.

    SmartFetch: (2 discs)

    The entire Smartwork force fetching system from “Hold” through force to pile!

    The SmartFetch DVDs are a complete video guide on how to correctly Force Fetch your hunting dog from start to finish. Force fetch is more than just one thing. It is a definable process with clear goals. But, within the process are several steps or phases.

    Mouth habits include such important items as fetching on command, even when your dog may be distracted, or moody, or any number of things that might interfere with compliance. Sure, you may get away for years without having such problems, but being smart and being lucky are not the same thing. Force fetch gives you a tool to handle this when it comes up, plus some insurance that it is less likely to come up due to this training.
