On May 23 - 25th we will be hosting a Bill Hillmann seminar at Raney Ranch Retrievers in Santa Ysabel, CA.  

Bill Hillmann is best know for his DVD's Training a Retriever Puppy, Traffic Cop, and The Fetch Command and has sense released The Art and Science of Raising a Puppy and Retriever Fundamentals for land and water.  All of which focus on the "soft collar" method and building a dog that not only enjoys but is also excited to work with you and ultimately building a team you are proud to be part of.

Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • Teaching the “Fetch” command (a/k/a “force breaking”)

  • Bill’s famous “Traffic Cop” method of teaching the SIT command and reinforcing the SIT command with the electric collar and other stimuli and distractions

  • Understanding how to create an electronic signal between you and your dog using the “soft collar” method

  • Fundamentals on land and in the water: Casting, Pile Work, Single T, Power Cast, Water T, Swim By, Cheating Marks, Lining and Casting Drills

  • Next steps up from foundation work

Registration for this event is 225.00 per person.  Registration includes the seminar and lunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday.

This is a workshop format that will encourage participation from the gallery.  To illustrate specific concepts and drills, Bill will work throughout the course of the seminar with various dog/hander teams but every dog will not run every setup.   Please be sure to bring something to write on and a chair.
