This book contains a comprehensive guide to training retrievers, with a special focus on breaking them when they are puppies. Written in simple, plain language and profusely-illustrated, this handbook will be of significant utility to readers wanting to train their retrievers to be gun dogs from an early age. Although old, this guide contains a timeless information, making it both a useful resource and a fine addition to collections of vintage literature. Contents include: "Choosing a Puppy", "Early Days", "Begins to Retrieve", "Real Use of Thresh-cord", "Introduction to Game", "Water Work", "Out of the Twelfth", "St. Partridge", "Getting On", "Retriever Trails", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on gun dogs.
