Bill Hillmann’s NEW Fundamentals DVD – the basic steps necessary to teach your retriever to handle, run blinds, and be a reliable hunting dog.

After you have taught your puppy to fetch from a single pile, then you are ready to begin angle back casting. This is very important because the angle back casts will be the beginning for turning left and right on straight back casts, and eventually will be the foundation for single T.

To follow this step is really important. It is like all of the parts of basic training .. . . all fundamentals must be practiced over and over because there can be no weaknesses. If there are inconsistencies or problems they will certainly show up later in training.

Bill describes and demonstrates what is required to be finished with Single T.
