Dave Rorem - "It’s an excellent publication. A lot of amateurs don’t realize the value of the training tips. I would highly recommend it."
Mike Lardy - "It’s a terrific publication! . . . It’s so unique as a forum on methodology." "Dennis has contributed more to educating trainers than anybody else! " (Note: Retrievers ONLINE responds. . except for Mike!)
"Dennis' methods for training alone are a real plus for the amateur who doesn't have all the help that many professionals enjoy. But what's a real eye-opener for me is that some of the techniques are actually so effective that they are sometimes better than having the big set-ups with multiple marks."

The late Rex Carr - "I was impressed with the substance . . . and the desire to reach beyond where you are."
This magazine is the single best source of retriever training information available. I've bought several years of back issues for my library. Great investment. I subscribe to Retrievers ONLINE which I feel after 45 years of training experience is the best, most informative publication ever for trainers who want to become better trainers - Don St. Clair IL
I've subscribed to Dennis Voigt's Retrievers ONLINE since 2009 after meeting him and at a Lardy Basics workshop where he helped Mike, and his team. I have bought several years of back issues of RO as well. "ONLINE is excellent! Very interesting and stimulating articles." - Jack Gwaltney
"It’s hard to imagine how ONLINE could improve."
"A terrific job for the retriever community."
"I can’t begin to tell you how much enjoyment I gain from reading ONLINE. The articles are great."
"I think ONLINE is outstanding when compared to the other glossy-covered magazines I’ve read!"
"ONLINE is a major contribution to the game."
Google anything you can find on "Stand Alones" and particularly anything written by Dennis Voigt (who wrote the book on Training Retrievers Alone, literally). Also check out back issues of Retrievers ONLINE which is loaded with suggestions on the subject.
The point Voigt makes frequently is that there are some things the "lonely amateur" can do that are an advantage over just doing big set-ups with a gaggle of training partners and dogs. Not a complete substitute, but an amazing amount of good you can do on your own.
Retrievers ONLINE has the most useful information
Today we have the internet, RTF, lots of good programs on DVD and Dennis Voigt’s wonderful monthly " Retrievers ONLINE”.
A very successful competitor, trainer, teacher & publisher of Retrievers ONLINE. Dennis Voigt gives a very well thought out seminar & is an excellent instructor.
Retrievers ONLINE: Thank you Dennis and Fiona for helping to make us all better trainers. I thank you and my dogs thank you, keep up the good work. Your latest issue is truly outstanding, Happy 25 th Anniversary! I'm an amateur that trains his own dogs. I started just a year or so after "LRCO ONLINE" got going. This publication has been the most important resource this amateur can think of. Highly motivational. Congrats on 25 yrs of Retrievers ONLINE.
I got my first issues (happily, all 4 issues from 2013). Started in on them right away and then took them on the plane with me where I picked up my new puppy. It was a 20 hour ordeal that pup handled great. Me, not so much. But I consumed the RO's all the way. They are GREAT! Wish I'd gotten a subscription years ago.
Retrievers ONLINE! It's all about Retriever training......and worth every penny!
If you want to learn how to train your own dog, I'd study everything written or put on DVD by Mike Lardy and Dennis Voigt.
Dennis Voigt's 25 Essential Drills is outstanding at this stage of your training. I highly recommend it.
I have just concluded my review of the 25 Essential Drills DVDs. It took me four sessions as I wanted to study the drills as I went along rather than just scan through them.
I think it is outstanding and would give it a five star rating. My head is swimming with the things that I want to get out and do
I have found your videos . . .just so insightful. I just can't thank you enough for the insight that you all have given me so I can train my dogs and run them in hunting and tests with so much less collar correction. I find I nick very seldom any more (and when I do, it is with much lower intensity) and do lots more "no-no's". The dogs are so happy, jumping around and wagging tails and just having a ball.
What a gift you have given the rest of us.....many thanks!
Dennis is clearly a master at teaching new concepts to both young and advanced retrievers!
Note: In December 2015, Dennis gave a Workshop in New Zealand. The Trainers there eagerly devoured and study much of the new material I presented to the. They have been enjoying great success in competition in the ensuing field trial season. Here is a testimonial from their Facebook page.
"What a week for training group members. Bint is now a FTCh, and not yet 2.5 yr old. Ted is sitting on 5 challenge points and needs only one more for his title and Cruz picked up his first. Not to mention all the placings gained by our minor dogs and Teresa's Traveller coming out and competing well at open level. Personally I want to thank Dennis Voigt. It is Dennis' drills and insights that have put the polish on Bint's marking and lines. Our training became much more focused... and beneficial as a result of what I picked up at the seminar.I have been able to achieve this without denting Bint's confidence. I encourage everyone to carry on with the program and to have confidence that your training will achieve the results that I have experienced. Even Bint and Ted's mother, Tat, has benefited. She picked up a challenge point last week as well and I believe her increased focus and steady behaviour on the peg is due to the changes we have made to the way in which we train. Thanks to everyone for your support and special thanks to Teresa Borrell for organising the seminar last year.
