This book picks up where other books leave off by teaching handlers how to correct flaws in a dog's behavior in the field.

What is a problem gun dog? "A perfectly trained dog is that dog with only those problems you'll put up with. If the dog has a problem you can't stand -- then that is a problem."

In reviewing basic training techniques for bird dogs, Tarrant discusses the power bar for teaching heel, the whoa post for teaching whoa and come, and the chain gang for training with the help of other dogs. Then he offers advice for correcting bolting, hard mouth, chasing cars, gun shyness, and other problems. An entire chapter is devoted to the "magic table," Tarrant's sure-fire method for teaching pointing dogs to retrieve.

Tarrant focuses on correcting faults unique to retrievers by offering solutions for common problems with marks on land -- breaking, mis-marking, balking, running away with the bird -- and in water -- water shyness, running the bank, heading for another shore, and retrieving decoys. Two chapters deal with the special difficulties of land and water blinds.

Since flushing dogs perform many tasks common to bird dogs and retrievers, many of their problems can be solved by applying the techniques prescribed for those breeds. Springers and Cocker Spaniels are particularly sensitive, however, so Tarrant devotes a chapter to correcting their unique faults.
