Interesting, but I'm not ready to enroll yet


Training the Send Away with Michael Ellis opens with an excellent lecture on the concept and training steps for the send away by Michael Ellis. This lecture was filmed at Michael's school on advanced obedience in California. There is a chapter on working with puppies and a chapter on when to use touch pads vs a toy. There will also be a chapter on training the whistle back (for the ring sports). There is an excellent section on retraining a Schutzhund dog to Michael's system of training the send away and an excellent chapter in which Michael reviews his system.


Ed Frawley enjoyed the production of this content and course because he learned a lot along the way. Some trainers will think "How much can there be to training this exercise?" Michael has included many training steps that cover different types of dogs. He discusses how you approach the training for the high drive dogs and he explains what trainers need to change in their training program to accommodate lower drive dogs.
