Mike wrote an article, titled "Too Sensitive" that is now available in Volume 3. In his articles and tape sets, Mike has discussed his philosophy of training. His "state of the art" methodology with the e-collar enables sensitive dogs to be effectively trained to reach their full potential. A well known example of a highly successful, but sensitive retriever was 3X NFC Candlewoods Tanks A Lot, known as "Lottie." She, as well as Mike's other numerous Field Champions and National Champions, was trained by the methods shown in the Total Retriever Video Series. Mike believes that fairly sensitive dogs with high desire are perhaps the best competitors, and the kind that make training more fun.
