Description - The Gamekeeper's Dog by John Cowan

John Cowan is an experienced gamekeeper working in Scotland and here he shares a life-time's expertise in using and training working dogs. He covers each category of gamekeeper's dog: Retriever, Terrier, Hunter Pointer Retriever, Pointers and Setters, Guard Dogs, Spaniels, Lurchers and Cross-breeds and discusses in fascinating detail the role that each group of dog plays in the working life on a sporting Estate, once trained. He discusses the strengths and weaknesses of invidual breeds and illustrates his points with some fascinating first-hand experiences with specific working dogs. 'The Gamekeeper's Dog' also includes John Cowan's account of how a gamekeeper trains his specific dogs, how he selects them and his relationship with them. Unique specialist advice on how to train a dog to 'bay' and to find and sit by fallen game is also included.
