Pointing Dogs : How to Train, Nurture, and Appreciate Your Bird Dog
Pointing Dogs departs from traditional training guides by treating dogs as individuals with different temperaments who need to be trained according to the individual needs of their owners. This book covers not only field-training fundamentals, but the ten lessons our dogs try to teach us: how to personalize the training to fit the needs of both hunter and dog; how bloodlines, training, and experience combine to form the complete bird dog; insights into a dog's scenting abilities; proper care of a bird dog; and how to live with your dog the other ten months of the year.
