Professional trainers John and Amy Dahl (The 10-Minute Retriever) are uniquely suited to discuss training problems and techniques for solving them. John (a full-time professional trainer since 1975) has been training, hunting over, and competing with retrievers fro 55 years, a span which has seen profound changes (and a number of fads) in training methods. John and Amy have trained countless dogs that came to them with problems already established, and have coached many more owners, often long-distance, through solving their training problems themselves.

From this basis of experience, John and Amy discuss many of the problems that occur in the training of retrievers, and suggest solutions in the context of how retrievers learn, maintaining their motivation, and adapting training methods to capitalize on strengths of each individual. Topics include line manners, bird handling, marking and lining problems, refusal to retrieve, problems with pressure, resolving difficulties in force-fetching, puppy training issues, and more. Retriever Troubleshooting provides valuable guidance on training dogs to go straight, developing marking and hunting ability, using pressure effectively, and promoting stylish, clean retrieves through clear lessons and judicious use of force.
