GUNDOG SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

GUNDOG SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

Author - Wilson Stephens - Publisher - Swanhill

This book is very different from a standard dog training manual.

The author confesses on the first page that he wished certain knowledge had been given him twenty years ago - i.e. at that time he was told WHAT to do but not HOW to do it.

In this book he imparts the knowledge of twenty years gundog training to fill the gap. He concentrates particularly on training the dog in the field and on a shoot and shows how to gain mutual respect by understanding the dog's five senses and the ways in which they differ from our own.

An informative and enjoyable read!

But throughout he stresses the importance of "training the trainer" if a gundog is going to make the grade.

"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.
