RETRIEVER PUPPY TRAINING, The Right Start for Hunting
Retriever Puppy Training presents a program of basic training that will turn young retrievers into efficient and enthusiastic hunting companions. A step-by-step teaching schedule provides the continuity so important to fostering a puppy’s confidence. A favorite with people starting out with their first retriever or those who want to raise a hunting companion from puppyhood, the program is equally effective with young dogs starting beyond that age. Experienced handlers and those planning to trial or hunt test their dogs will also find it helpful.
This dog training book covers puppy selection, puppy personality types, basic housedog manners, and a progressive retriever training program that includes water retrieves, blinds, and marks. When your pup has completed this program, he will be ready to hunt. You will have worked out of all the excuses that retrievers try to use, and you will have a well-mannered companion. Completely revised in 2010.
