"What does Paul Long say about it?" is the question often asked by most serious trainers. Recently revised with new photographs and format, Training Pointing Dogs highlights the sage guidance of this master dog trainer. In simple question-and-answer format, Long answers the questions most asked by trainers, professional and amateur alike.
Should I try to train my dog myself? Do I need to use a whistle? How do I deal with a dog who sulks after correction? When should I breed my male dog? How do I stop my dog from barking at night without cause? What should I do if my dog will point a dead bird but not pick up and retrieve it?
Paul Long's answers to these questions are practical and filled with a good sense and subtle, wry humor of a wily veteran. His answer to the last question above is a delightful example: "Retrieving is a pretty sight and desirable. Elsewhere in the book you will find suggestions for encouraging your dog to retrieve. But if you have no success, remember that it is a rare sight to see a man point a bird. However, many men have a back strong enough to lean down and pick up a bird that a dog has located and pointed dead." (6 X 9, 112 pages, b&w photos)
