A valuable training guide for all owners of any of the retriever breeds, from those who simply want to train their family pet through to those wishing to eventually compete in field trials or work their dogs on shoots. Detailed photographs demonstrate each of the exercises and are accompanied by details of what may go wrong, how to recognise potential problems and how any difficulties can be rectified before they become real problems. The book also has extensive advice on puppy care, and shows how early domestic training can prevent many behavioural issues. The author shows that a reward-based reinforcement approach is the essential motivating factor that will encourage puppies to learn from an early age what is required for life!
Reviews for Training the Working Retriever
Of all the [training] methods I’ve come across, none has impressed me more than those practised by Anthea Lawrence. When I heard that Quiller was looking for someone to write a book on retriever training to join its impressive library of gundog titles, I put Anthea forward as the ideal person for the job… there will always be a place for a book like this.
Must-have for new retriever owners this Christmas.
Stands out among the many available titles on retriever training: it is written with infinite attention and a great love for dogs as our fellow companions in the long process of training.
Much the best recent work on training these dogs to the gun.
