Retriever Puppy Training, The Right Start for Hunting presents a program of basic training for turning young retrievers into efficient and happy workers. Although many retriever owners are very competent trainers, they lack a plan of continuity so important for developing a puppy's confidence. This book provides a step-by-step teaching schedule that correlates to a dog's mental and physical development. the reader will learn socialization and obedience training techniques, retrieving commands, correct field training and yardwork practice, and what equipment to use - all an owner needs to know to produce a cooperative house pet and a reliable hunting companion.
Retriever Puppy Training includes a complete glossary of terms, helpful pictures and diagrams, and a Three Phases of Training outline. It's a handy reference for learning the steps to successful retriever training.
Many puppy owners have the desire and the ability to do a good job of training their hunting dog, but they lack a step-by-step program to use as a guide. When your pup has completed this program he will have the basic disciplines that are necessary for advanced training such as blind retrieves. He'll be ready to go when you put your hand over his head and say back. You will have worked out all the yes, bu, maybe and I don't want to excuses that all retrievers try to use.
This book is directed to owners of puppies in their first year, but the program is equally effective with young retrievers that start this program beyond that age. It gives your retriever the necessary disciplines and skills he will need if he is to become your reliable hunting companion.

From the Back Cover:

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. The authors cover how to work with your puppy’s unique personality, correlate lessons to the pup’s mental and physical development, train with lessons that are progressive, thorough, and uncomplicated, and most of all, effective! Retriever Puppy Training, The Right Start to Hunting has been a favorite with people starting out with their first retriever puppy or those who want to raise a hunting companion from puppyhood. However, experienced retriever handlers and those planning to trial or hunt test with their dogs will also find it very helpful.

About the Author:

A native Coloradoan, Cherylon Loveland has been training all breeds of retrievers for over 20 years. While associated with Duncan Labradors, she assisted in the training of competitive field trial dogs. She now has her own training kennel, Hunt-Field, and trains both hunting and field trial dogs.
Clarice Rutherford is co-author of How to Raise a Puppy You Can Live With and Retriever Working Certificate Training. Both authors agree that the tingle that they get in their spine as they watch a retriever working out a difficult problem in the field is special-like no other feeling. It's what keeps retriever people working with their dogs regardless of weather, rough terrain, and long, hard days.
