Training the Pointer-retriever Gundog by Michael Brander
Book DescriptionMichael Brander has trained pointer-retrievers for many years with great success. In this book, he has written a complete guide to training from the initial stages through to field trial level. Essentially, however, he has written for the owner who wants a thoroughly useful all-round working gundog, which should be able to work with equal facility in the open, in cover and in water. In "Training the Pointer - Retriever Gundog", Michael Brander outlines how to train both the puppy and the adult dog, for, as he takes care to emphasize, training is not just the reult of one season or even two. Both handler and dog should continue to learn from each other throughout their lifetimes. The book includes a chapter on training and working two dogs and another on field trialling as well as a comprehensive glossary of terms used in training.
