Top Dog Softcover Second Edition Back

Copyright 2011, 152 pages, soft cover, black and white photos and illustrations

A perfect and simple manual for training retrievers for both upland and waterfowl hunting. "Top Dog" is also the ideal companion to the popular Richard A. Wolters video series that has been used successfully by hundreds of thousands of hunters and dog lovers for the past fifty years.

Master dog trainer Richard Wolters is renowned for his innovative techniques, customized to achieve superior results for a variety of pet owners. Now his protege Joseph Middleton combines the coaching from the top-selling books in Wolters' series (Water Dog, Gun Dog, and Game Dog) with the latest methods. The result is a comprehensive, up-to-date guide for amateur trainers, including:

  • Refined aspects of retrieval, including difficult multiple-blind retrieves
  • Advanced drills for an advanced hunting retriever and field trainer
  • All the basics of obedience that work on any age dog
  • Six tests for selecting the correct puppy in the litter
  • The humane way to train with the electronic collar

    Top Dog goes further than previous instruction methods, providing advanced information on training retrievers to their highest level of ability. Here you will find guidance on teaching your retriever more complex drills, including angle entries, multiple blinds, honoring, ignoring 'poison' birds, and much more.
