And what are the basics I hear you ask... oh thats easy; good manners, good obedience and a good retrieve all combine to make a gundog a pleasure to live with.
That is exactly what this book is all about; starting with can I have a puppy, this book guides you through not only selecting a breeder and a puppy, but critical life stages and, just as importantly, laying down solid foundation training with your puppy to enable you to own a dog to be proud of.
