Product Description

The Complete Guide to Training Gundogs is an authoritative book which covers all aspects of gundog training. In writing this book James Douglas has very much identified with the problems, large and small, and the requirements of the modern gundog owner - whether he is a city dweller or a countryman. The author combines an in-depth knowlege and understanding of every aspect of handling and control with a highly readable, entertaining and useful book. The book takes the reader through the historical developments of the various types of the retriever, the spaniel, and the HPR breeds, and then on to actual training. He deals with all stages of training from puppyhood and on through the intervening monhts of the dog's developement to the adult, highly-skilled working dog. Included are chapters on breeding and whelping, and what is expected of dog and handler at a field trial.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog training old style 20 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Despite its age, this book is still perfectly relevant. Dogs are much the same as when it was written and it covers the important points accurately. I think there's a line about using marbles and a catapult when your dog ignores you at a distance, so just omit that and carry one.
