9780525932871: Working Retrievers: The Training, Care, And Handling Of Retrievers For Hunting And Field Trials

In this complete book on retrievers and their training, we enter the world of Tom Quinn, one of America's most successful breeders and trainers of bird dogs. Quinn explains the methods he has used in developing a remarkable series of champion retrievers, including his first Labrador bitch, Nakai Anny, who won honors as Field Champion and Amateur Field Champion, and is a member of the Retriever Hall of Fame.

THE WORKING RETRIEVERS covers every aspect of training dogs for hunting and field trials, from the beginning to the most advanced levels. The book also surveys the various retriever breeds--Labradors, Goldens, Chesapeakes, and others--and their histories. Quinn then takes us, step by step, through the training process.

Also included is information on feeding, care, and transportation; breeding; buying and selling; and other matters of vital importance. Accompanied with photographs, line drawings, and a gorgeous, 16-page, full-color insert with both photographs and some of the author's own fabulous paintings, THE WORKING RETRIEVERS is an expert, comprehensive guide to be cherished by all who love retrievers. It belongs on every outdoorsman's bookshelf.
