What makes this book so valuable are the four great skills John Wick brings to it:
First is his experience, which is virtually unsurpassed.
Secondly, John Wick possesses a scientific mind. While others pay far less attention, John learns from every night and every experience. To him it's not enough to know that a dog did something. He must know why. Was it training? Breeding? Coincidence? Environment? What would another dog do in the same situation? Whether it relates to breeding, training, or disease, he remembers what he's learned, and knows how to use it.
Third, John Wick is just plain honest. However popular the concept, if it doesn't hold water, he'll say so. Directly.
Fourth, and vitally important, John Wick has the ability to communicate what he knows in a clear and interesting fashion.
About the Author:
John Wick is recognized as one of the nation's leading coonhound trainers. His methods are based on his own vast personal experiences. For many years, John worked with 50 to 100 dogs a year and hunted all night almost every night of the year. There isn't a training technique he hasn't tried, and there isn't a coonhound related problem he hasn't encountered several times. Originally from Pennsylvania, John moved to Missouri in the mid 1970's to be closer to the heart of the coon hunting world. He first became noted nationally many years ago for his trashbreaking methods and his Treeing Walker kennel.
Dissatisfied with the hunting clothes available to the coon hunter at that time, Wick designed his first hunting chaps. After several revisions and improvements, he and his wife came out with the Wick Nylon Hunting Chaps. Soon Wick Outdoor Works developed a complete and highly respected line of hunting clothes designed especially for hunters and other serious outdoor folks. Until their retirement and closing of the company 32 years later, they were as innovative in creating their line of clothes as John has been in his dog breeding and training methods.
A past contributing editor for Coonhound Bloodlines magazine, Wick's monthly column "John Wick on Training" was one of the most popular features in this respected, award winning publication.
