Youth Hunting (teaching them, as i understand it is illegal to hunt youth)
Darn! And I already had the grill warmed up! Oh, well!

As PawPaw pointed out, you need to have an end result in mind before you start out training a dog, as very few dogs can be taught to "do it all". Richard Wolters wrote a series of books (Water Dog, Gun Dog, Family Dog, etc, now available on DVD) on dog training, and although the style is a bit dated, they are very good books, and are generally available from pet supplies stores and libraries. They will take your dog from shoe-chewer to very well-trained gun dog in a short period of minimal effort. I have used the books to train several dogs with excellent results.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
