The Pet Gundog
A common sense approach to dog training The Pet Gundog has been written for all those dog owners who, like me, have a gundog breed sharing their home.
Introducing you to the psychology of the dog, common sense behaviour advice is given on how to achieve harmony in your mixed-species pack.
Basic training and good manners are covered, after all, who wants to live with a bolshie, bad mannered gundog?
A toe-dipping foray into the world of shooting gives you an insight into what your dog has been bred for. The book then covers how to exploit your gundog's innate behaviour so that walks become a pleasure, your home
stays intact and you have a happy, contented and fulfilled pet gundog.
"This is one of the most refreshing books on dog training that I have read for many years. This is a book about practical training with an immense and clear description of the underlying behaviour within our pet dogs and how
we can utilise those intrinsic drives to enhance the training of our dogs. This book should be a prerequisite for dog owners to read - is not just of use for those who own Gundog breeds, but for all dog owners. The author has an
informal and empathetic style of writing that leaves the reader not only with factual, common sense good solid dog training, but amusing anecdotes and helpful explanations throughout which results in leaving the reader
feeling as if they know the author personally. So good do I believe this book to be, I recommended it to numerous clients before its publication!"

"Lez is a treasure trove of common-sense and practical methods for training all breeds of dogs - it's the best book of the year"

This book is a structured walk through of how to educate and train your dog to the standard that you desire.
Long gone are the days of reading comments in other books such as 'make sure your dog walks to heel' etc etc... Lez takes you through how to get your dog to do this (and many many other commands/exercises) in practical steps.
There is clearly presented information that leads from exercise to exercise. If you want a trained Gundog then this book will show you how to achieve it. If you just want a well behaved pet, again this book will unlock how to go about securing this.
I was so happy that i had found a teacher and method who would explain how to achieve what i wanted that i contacted Lez and started to attend her training days.
If you are new to dog training (Gundog or not) or just want a practical and common sense explanation of dog training i would not hesitate to recommend clearing you bookshelf of all other titles and replacing then with the three books written by Lez.
As you can probably work out i'm a fan of this book, its excellent!
Very good book, well worth the price just for all the Geordie humour flowing from it, never mind the solid reliable dog training.The Pet Gundog: A Common Sense Approach to Dog Training
I read the book cover to cover before I started to use the training tips. Now I am putting them into practice and reaping the benefits.
I am now looking forward to getting the next book. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a dog.
Easy to read and amusing, I actually found my mother (who is only mildly interested in dogs) with her nose buried in it!!
If you're looking to buy a book to help you train your 'in-house' gun-dog, then look no further!
