Basic training to help you turn your young retriever into an efficient and enthusiastic worker
This book is directed to owners of retriever puppies in their first year, but the program is equally effective with young retrievers starting beyond that age. It gives your retriever the necessary disciplines and skills he will need to become a reliable hunting companion. The authors assume that most puppies grow up as house pets, and so throughout the program lessons that every companion dog needs to learn are also stressed. Puppies learn best with step-by-step progression, so using this program as a guide, you will have a retriever that can go on to be successful in whatever field you choose—competitive or non-competitive.
• Work with your puppy’s unique personality
• Correlate lessons to the pup’s mental and physical development
• Train with lessons that are progressive, thorough, uncomplicated and most of all, effective!
