Fowl Dawgs 1 covers basic training - introduction to land and water marks, obedience, hold, force fetch, collar conditioning, steadying your dog and quartering.
Fowl Dawgs 2 covers advanced basics - force to pile, indirect pressure, whistle sit, mini T, double T, swim-by and remote swim-by.
Another possible training DVD is Chris Akin's. I have not seen this, but many mention it so maybe someone else will chime in here.
The Fowl Dog individual DVD's are not too $$$$ .... But if you are concerned on cost, again I would suggest you take a look at the Classified Section on Retriever Training Forum (RTF) as there is always someone looking to sell their lightly used training DVD's.
Would also suggest locating a retriever club that you can go out and train with as club members will happily work with a new member and their pup and all that will cost is throwing a few birds at the club's training day!
