Updated August 31, 2014
Our July–August–September “Summer” issue began mailing on schedule the week of August 18th. Most of you should get it between August 25 and mid-September. We always have some locations that take 3 days and others over 3 weeks, so give it time to get to you!

For NEW SUBSCRIBERS, you will get this issue plus the two previous 2014 issues, all subscriptions now run from January 2014 to December 2014.

The current issue has something for everyone. To begin with, we have the complete report on the Canadian National Amateur Retriever Championship, held during July in Kapuskasing, Ontario. For those in Basics, there is an article on Pile Work with ideas for using Pile Work for Advanced dogs also. The Transition level trainers will want to read about some “make or break” training techniques. The Advanced corner discusses water marks and why they are so different to land marks. There are articles on a two-person drill, ideas for training groups and how a 3-day visit to Chinese Drills was so beneficial.

We also thoroughly review the new Garmin/Tri-Tronics Pro 550 e-collar – a must read if you are in the market – it’s a winner! You will also find two book reviews – both about understanding how dogs think and sense their world. There are also assorted news items for your information.

Our Fall issue will deadline 1 November and you should get it by the New Year. There will also be updates soon about an exciting new venture by Retrievers ONLINE, so stay tuned for that.

Also check back here in October and find out the status of a new video on 25 Essential Retriever Training Drills for Handling. We think it will be a “must-have” for many of you!

Meanwhile, don’t forget about our Training Retrievers Alone video which has helped so many trainers in the US and Canada. For those always hungry for new information, we still have an inventory of Retrievers ONLINE back issues available. Those volumes contain a great amount of timeless training and handling information unavailable collectively anywhere else.

We hope you are enjoying your summer, as it comes to a close and we look forward to a great fall season afield with our dogs.
