    About Tom Dokken:

    Tom Dokken has more than 40 years of experience turning retrievers into successful field trial competitors, hunt test participants, waterfowling companions, and upland bird finders. Tom is the creator of the popular Dokken Deadfowl Trainer, and Dokken's Oak Ridge Kennels in Northfield, MN, is one of the largest all-breed hunting dog training facilities in the United States.
    Tom Dokken has many talents, the greatest of which is his ability to take your happy, untrained dog and, weeks later, return to you a trained companion that's still happy.

    Anyone who has attended one of Tom's seminars knows he is a hands-on trainer, beginning with handling your puppy on the very first day. This book provides a well-illustrated, step-by-step program to develop your pup into a willing and happy retriever.
