Transcript from Steve's Video:

Today we're looking at "The 10 Minute Retriever" by John and Amy Dahl. This book is focused on short training sessions. Especially with a puppy, that's a great idea. It's just built around the idea that if you'll spend 10 minutes a day with your dog you can actually do all the training that you need in a really short period of time.

A lot of folks get real obsessed with working with their dog and, over time, they will spend just a little too much time in working in a session. So the concept here is short sessions spread out over time creates a dog that's a little more focused on what he's doing.

One of my favorites strictly from a time saving point. Big fan. It's one of our picks and we really highly recommend it.

"It is a great "first" book if you are getting your first dog and need just as much training as your dog, and a great intermediate to advanced book."

By: Kirk Wythers

Hunts. I have a number of retriever training books, videos, etc, and if I had to pick one book to base all of my training on, this would be it. It is a great "first" book if you are getting your first dog and need just as much training as your dog, and a great intermediate to advanced book. The 10 Minute Retriever is really all you need to get you and your dog ready for the hunting season.

"This book was priceless"

By: Daniel Berry From IL

labrador. Hunts. Family pet. As a first time retriever owner trying to train a hunting dog...this book was priceless.
I'm a father of two and coach several sports throughout the year making the most of the small amount of time I have with my dog is crucial. This book was great for helping me with things to focus on during short periods of time and helped understand how to progress in a way that benefits my dog.

" I would highly recommend this book"

By: Jeremy DeMont From NY

Black Lab. Hunts. Family pet. I bought this book and several others with it since I was training my first hunting dog. I would highly recommend this book along with several other books and DVDs. The one thing I did learn is that there is no right or sure-fire way to train your dog; sometimes certain types of training works better with one dog than others and having several ideas and different ways to train your dog(s).

By: James Cochran From CO

Labrador. Hunts. Family pet. As most of these books seems to be, pretty much worthless. The author rehashes dogs that he's had from long ago and uses techniques from the 50's and 60's (in my opinion). They worked then, kind of, but we've come a long way in dog training. I was expecting (hoping, actually) for a step by step process to achieve the goal stated in the title. Save your money and buy the Tritronics retriever training book. It is the only one I've found that has step-by-step instructions,and they work.

    Video of The 10 Minute Retriever Book by John and Amy Dahl



    Copyright 2001, 256 pages, soft cover, black and white photos and illustrations

    The 10 Minute Retriever reflects the authors' belief that daily ten-minute training sessions best suit a retriever's attention span and lead to rapid learning. This book is easy to use for the absolute beginner and yet deeply informative for the serious student of retriever training. The text has the information aspiring retriever trainers need: how to force fetch, how to set up tests in the field, and how to use an electronic collar humanely and effectively. The emphasis of this training method is on obtaining necessary control and good manners while maximizing the dog's enthusiasm by establishing training situations where the dog desires to cooperate. Primary importance is placed on developing and enhancing the desire to retrieve, from early puppyhood onward. The method presented provides a solid foundation to the dog and owner continuing to advanced retriever training (blind retrieves and competition).

    John and Amy Dahl have over 40 years of retriever training experience between them. They have won numerous field-trials, five State Gun Dog Championships, handled six dogs to Field Championships, and trained owner-handled dogs to their titles, including two Chesapeakes and two Dual Champions. They are regular and popular contributors to The Retriever Journal magazine.
