Book Description

10 Nov 2006
Gundog Training Made Easy by Eric Begbie is a detailed set of step-by-step lessons based on his famous set of Gundog Training Broadsheets that have been used by many thousands of gundog and hunting enthusiasts in all five continents. This superbly written book provides a wonderfully explicit training course for training any gun dog or hunting dog. It is ideal for retrievers or for spaniels and is equally valuable for pet dogs. In addition to the structured training course, graduated according to the age and stage of the puppy, there is a section of Frequently Asked Questions and a wealth of other information. Importantly, this book uses only positive humane methods of dog training and totally avoids aversive techniques. A must for every dog owner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but Effective 17 Feb 2007
This just has to be the simplest dog training course that I have seen. It strips all the mystique away and present the basic lessons in a very easily followed style. The professionals must really hate books like this! What I really liked about it was the way it showed how to produce a top class gun dog or bird dog without using inhumane methods such as the shock collar or ear pinching. Very refreshing and very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 20 May 2008
By Dogger
OK - I am biased. But if I was new to dog training, this is exactly the type of book I would value. No nonsense, No padding. Just good common sense and a lifetime of experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 12 July 2007
This is a great little book that gives you a good understanding of the basics of gundog training. It is perfect for the beginner and the novice and anyone else who has an interest in learning the basics of gundog training. What makes this book even more marvellous are the methods - compared with electric shock collars and ear pulling Mr Begbie uses nothing more than a strong voice and holding the extra skin under the chin whilst using your strong voice.
This is a great comprehensive book that will give you the enthusiasm and understanding to start training

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic step by step guide 8 Feb 2009
Excellent brief step by step guide. What it doesn't do is tell you how to deal with things when they go wrong, or anything to do with dog psychology. Its very useful if you use it with other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 5 May 2010
By Jimbo
A good book, mainly focused, like other books on the time periods of your dogs growing up. E.G. 6-7 Months. However, i have bought this to use a with a 15 month old dog and it is going to work fine!

Good clear instruction, easy to read and understandable

4.0 out of 5 stars what a lot of info in such a small book! 19 Nov 2009
By Coco
I was a bit surprised just how thin this book was when it arrived - but once I read it realised that it actually contained a huge amount of information. Good, clear concise training instructions - why waffle for loads of pages when fewer words get straight to the point! The FAQ section was very informative.

I was recommended by a friend who keeps working dogs to 'just buy a book-it's not difficult' and it really isn't! This book is applicable to anyone with a dog they want to be obedient and safe when out and off the lead. It is broken down into simple sections and we are doing very well with it so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet 1 Jun 2011
By pete
Just what I was after. Pared down to the simplest of structures, you could read this in an hour and be good to go. Easy to get the gist of dog training and later, gun-dog training. Money well spent to help ensure your dog is a source of pride and pleasure to you. For reasons unknown the font is probably a size too small, but that doesn't take anything away from the content.

Great stuff, highly recommended.
