Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Ultimate Guide to Bird Dog Training explains how to train a bird dog to hunt at a pace that suits a man walking, and to point and hold birds with all the elegance and style of a field trial champion. It combines successful traditional methods with modern electronic techniques to show how the nation's top professional gun dog trainers develop reliable hunting dogs that are easy to control, exciting to watch, and stylish on point.

Topics covered include: Selecting and starting pups, electronic training aids, how to prevent gun shyness, backyard bird dog practice, using your dog afield for the first time, teaching dogs to quarter ahead of the gun, using the wind to your advantage, and much more.

The author has traveled around the United States for more than thirty years studying how professional trainers develop the most dependable and enjoyable hunting dogs, and passing that information on to readers. In this invaluable volume, he provides everything the sportsman or -woman needs to know to train pointing dogs for hunting in the close-cover conditions found in most parts of the country today.

Synopsis:

The perfect book for both beginning and experienced bird dog trainers.
