This guide to all aspects of working and training gundogs has become a popular classic, as demonstrated by the fact that it has now reached its eighteenth edition. The Kennel Club appendices in this edition have been fully updated as necessary. Written for the novice trainer, this book covers everything from the choice and selection of a gundog puppy through to participation in a field trial. The author's approach is thoroughly practical and his style is that of a practised writer who is able to make his meaning perfectly clear. It is the work of an expert who has great confidence in his methods and can also convey that confidence on to the reader. The selection of a suitable puppy and preliminary training are found in the first three chapters, followed by retrieving from water, practical shooting work, and then the more specialised areas of spaniel, pointer and setter training. Field trials are explained and the current Kennel Club regulations and breed clubs are included in an appendix. Closing chapters offer advice on housing, feeding and general management.

British Training for American Retrievers

Unleash Your Dog's Natural Talents

There has long been a disconnect between the retriever training methods in the United Kingdom and in North America. British Retriever Trials are primarily a test of the dog's skill as a game finder, while American Field Trials are a test of the handling techniques of the owner. The Brits teach their dogs to find every bird, while American handlers are training for an event in which tracking cripples plays no part. The British manner, for many American and Canadian hunters, makes more sense to them on a day-to-day basis because its aim is to produce a finished gun dog who is steady, quiet, and reliable in the field.
