German Shorthair. Hunts. I raised a couple of GSP's back in the '80's and used Delmar's book. His approach is really down to earth and logical. The DVDs are great, in particular Electronic Collar Gun Dog Training.

Nationally renowned professional bird dog trainer and Field Trial Hall of Fame member Delmar Smith of Edmond, Oklahoma, explains the Delmar Smith method of training pointing dogs.
Volume 1 -- Yard and Field Training
Smith (assisted by sons Tom Smith and Rick Smith) covers the bird dog basics from introducing 8-week-old puppies to the field, tying a bowline knot in a check cord, and making and using a "chain gang" to teaching a dog to be steady to wing and shot and to mark his birds down.
Yard and Field Training Volume 1 includes teaching "all right", "here", "ho", "birds", "whoa", "sit", and "heel" using a 20-foot check cord, a pinch collar, a "whoa post" and a "pigeon on a hose".
