For over 30 years, Richard Wolters' unrivaled expertise in training dogs has saved millions of owners many months of wasted time and labor. Now, this updated edition offers an efficient system to train retrievers for
hunting upland birds and waterfowl. With this concise new method, you can have a skilled hunting retriever by the time your dog is 1 year old.
Based on scientific discoveries in dog psychology and synchronized with your dog's natural development, Wolters' method follows a clear, week-by-week timetable. His step-by-step instructions, illustrated with sequence photographs of dogs in training, tell you:
How to choose a pup - what to look for, where to find the best
The five critical periods of a dog's mental development
Which retrievers are easier to train - males or females
How to get two dogs to work together
Why feeding time is more than food
How to teach your dog to track, quarter, and swim after game
How to get your dog to betray his instincts and obey your commands
Which tasks your dog must master to qualify as a hunter
This revised Second Edition is complete with the latest advances in training equipment, a full discussion of the new Hunting Retriever Stakes, and an
appendix containing the complete official rules for competition in these popular events.

"Wanted to see if there was any additional methods in game dog."
Used his books for all my hunting dogs, pointers and labs. I recommend them for anyone who has the desire to train their own dogs. If you have a little time everyday and common sense, you can train them following these methods. Pro trainers may come up with all kinds of reasons why you need them, but you don't if you follow Wolters books.
