I acquired a beagle/Boston Terrier Mix pup around 8 months old over 2 and half years ago he just turned 3.I am sure he was a Pet store dog with no pedigree in him. I know he has an amazing nose I just need to control it. He is the first dog I have tried to train. I didn't start training him until he turned 3. In one session using Wolters method I had him quartering a field and then in another 10 min session I had him taking a dummy from my hand on Fetch command. From what I have heard from many diffrent people terriers and beagles are stubborn to training and this dog is a very dominant dog. So for me being a very novice trainer and to have a Petstore dog with no working genes in him and to get results like that, I think the book speaks for itself. I know all dogs are diffrent and require diffrent situations but to use Wolters books as a general guide line for training I think any novice can get some kind of results

Labrador Retriever. Hunts. Family pet. Excellent books. Used them over 15 years ago to train a chocolate lab. These training methods produced an excellent retreiver(waterfowl) and dual tasked upland hunter. Lost the books and found them at gun dog supply. Training a new lab pup and hope to have the same results.
