If Your Retriever Could Talk!

or "If You Could Read Their Mind!"
(A slide show of 65 pictures with captioning)

This DVD was produced for sale to raise money for two organizations that need and deserve support for the positive impact they have on people not only in WNY but throughout the entire country and abroad.  City Church of Batavia, NY has a project that has been put on hold for several years due to concentrating their resources to helping others.  Roswell Park Cancer Institute's reputation speaks for itself!  Both of these organizations save lives and souls on a daily basis.  ALL profits will go directly to City Church and Roswell Park.  Price for the DVD is $18 which includes taxes and shipping.

During my early days of working with retrievers, I used to wonder, "what is that dog thinking?"  That was the beginning of an attitude that has played a big part in the development of the techniques I use in training.  God Blessed me with the ability to quickly determine the dog's personality and apply whatever action needed to manipulate the animal into building up the confidence and desire to please and perform as he/she was bred to do.  As the years have passed and the memories continue to accumulate, I find myself not only wondering what the dog is thinking, but what would happen if they could talk.  The more pictures I looked at and the situations the dog was exposed to, the more I started imagining some funny remarks or thoughts that particular animal may have had at the time.  It's amazing at some of the things we demand and ask of our four legged hunting partner.

I decided to put this DVD together for the purpose of putting a smile on the face of all you retriever owners.  As you look at each picture, it will produce memories of similar situations you and your retriever have shared.  Share this with your family, hunting partners and new dog owners.  It may change the way you think of your dog and even the attitude in which you handle him.  Like I tell all my clients and friends, "the first thing you need to learn about the training and handling process with your retriever, is to smile and laugh a lot"!

Jim It is that time in my 50 plus year career to change the activity level of my business in order to continue using the gifts that God has entrusted me with.  Effective immediately, I will be contracting for performing seminars with a smaller set up than in the past.  The amount of space needed will be 16 x 24 for inside events but can be larger for those being held outdoors.  I will also contract to appear as an expert to answer questions and share my proven techniques for training and solving training issues in addition to waterfowl hunting questions.

For more information or to schedule me for your event, contact Andy Merkel at 585-813-4779 or email me personally.

I will be scheduling consulting sessions serving clubs, organizations & retailers for dog training, handling and waterfowl hunting.  We will also be accepting dates to run my popular Companion Retriever Hunting Challenge as a good fund raiser.

I will schedule private training sessions for retriever breeds only.

These services will enable me to continue helping hunters & dog owners enjoy the experience and success that my proven techniques provide.
