My new puppy is only three days old, but I guess its never too early to make plans. Obedience is my first love, probably always will be, but because I have a feeling this little one might be capable of doing some field, I would like to at least try some field training with him. I am hoping my dear friend Barb will let me tag along for some of her training, and observe what is involved, but any other advice on what I should start when this wee puppy comes home would be very welcome. I already have plans where I will be taking him for his obedience training, and am so looking forward to starting with a blank slate. Thanks in advance.

The obvious is Jackie's "sound beginnings", and I think you should get Hillman's puppy DVD. I don't know much about it, but maybe Radarsdad will join in here, he used it with his puppy and speaks highly of it. Apparently it's a way of getting them introduced to field concepts in a totally play environment, they don't even know they are learning.

I second what Barb said, both are very good DVDs.

How very exciting :)

I don't know either of the tapes involved, but have only heard good things about them.
