Author - Lez Graham - Publisher - Trained for Life
The Pet Gundog has been written for all those dog owners, who like me, have a gundog breed sharing their home. Introducing you to the psychology of the dog, common sense behaviour advice is given on how to achieve harmony in your mixed-species pack. Basic training and good manners are covered, after all, who wants to live with a bolshie, bad mannered gundog?
A toe-dipping foray into the world of shooting gives you an insight into what your dog has been bred for. The book then covers how to exploit your gundog's innate behaviour so that walks become a pleasure, your home stays intact and you have a happy, contented and fulfilled pet gundog.
"This is one of the most refreshing books on dog training that I have read for many years. This is a book about practical training with an immense and clear description of the underlying behaviour within our pet dogs and how we can utilise those intrinsic drives to enhance the training of our dogs.
This book should be a prerequisite for dog owners to read - is not just of use for those who own Gundog breeds, but for all dog owners. The author has an informal and empathetic style of writing that leaves the reader not only with factual, common sense good solid dog training, but amusing anecdotes and helpful explanations throughout which results in leaving the reader feeling as if they know the author personally.
So good do I believe this book to be, I recommended it to numerous clients before its publication!"Ross McCarthy MBIPDT MCFBA
