Click the IMAGE to see the next detailed picture.The 10-Minute Retriever reflects the authors' belief that daily ten-minute training sessions best suit a retriever's attention span and lead to rapid learning. This book is easy to use for the absolute beginner and yet deeply informative for the serious student of retriever training. The text has the information most needed by the owner of a pet retriever: how to make it reliably obedient and well-mannered. It has the information aspiring retriever trainers need: how to force fetch, how to set up tests in the field,. and how to use an electric collar humanely and effectively. The emphasis of this training method is on obtaining necessary control and good manners while maximizing the dog's enthusiasm by establishing training situations where the dog desires to cooperate. Primary importance is placed on developing and enhancing the desire to retrieve, from early puppy-hood onward. The method presented provides a solid foundation to the dog and owner continuing to advance retrieve training (blind retrieves and competition). John and Amy Dahl have over 30 years of retriever training experience between them. They have won numerous field-trials, five State Gun Dog Championships, handled six dogs to Field Championships, and trained owner-handled dogs to their titles, including two Chesapeakes and two Dual Champions. They are regular and popular contributors to The Retriever Journal magazine.
