Synopsis: The most efficient system to train retrievers for hunting upland birds and waterfowl—from the author of Water Dog.

This time-proven guide by legendary trainer Richard A. Wolters offers a step-by-step method for completely training your dog, resulting in a skilled hunting retriever by the time your pet is one year old. 

In Game Dog, you’ll discover:

· How to choose a pup—what to look for, where to find the best
· The five critical periods of a dog's mental development
· Which retrievers are easier to train—males or females
· How to get two dogs to work together
· Why feeding time is more than food
· How to teach your dog to track, quarter, and swim after game
· How to get your dog to betray his instincts and obey your commands
· Which tasks your dog must master to qualify as a hunter
· And much more...

Fully illustrated, Game Dog is an invaluable book for every hunter training a retriever and every pet owner who wants a better trained dog.

“Wolters has produced a solid book that will be of great help to anyone training his retriever to work. He is an acknowledged master in the field and an excellent instructor.”—Dog Fancy

About the Author: RICHARD A. WOLTERS was a leader in applying the scientific discoveries of animal behaviorists to dog training. His books on training—Game Dog, Water Dog, Gun Dog, Family Dog, and Home Dog—are recognized as classics in their fields. His historical book, The Labrador Retriever: The History...The People, was chosen as Best Dog Book of the Year by the Dog Writers Association of America. In 1984 the DWAA honored Mr. Wolters as both Writer of the Year for Game Dog and Columnist of the Year for his popular column “Gun Dog” in Gun Dog magazine. Well-known for his lectures and seminars on retriever training, Mr. Wolters also was a president of the Westchester, New York, Retriever Club, as well as a vice president and director of the North American Hunting Retriever Association, which he was influential in founding.

A veritable Renaissance man, Mr. Wolters worked as an atomic scientist, fine-arts teacher, photographer, and as picture editor at Sports Illustrated. His sporting interests included hunting, angling, bobsledding, ballooning, and soaring in sailplanes, in which he held the highest rating.
