Great information, especially being a novice in the game. I also liked watching the author work with the dogs using the techniques he discussed.

The Art and Science of Handling Retrievers Back Cover Detail

Copyright 2005, approx. 2 hour 39 minute total runtime

Dave Rorem shares his many years of experience and success in retriever field events in this two-DVD set and book. It is not just another training program -- it is designed to make you a better handler in field trials and hunt tests, increasing your success rate in competition. It is a "must have" for the serious competitor's library.
"Without a doubt, Dave Rorem is one of the best handlers we have in this sport." Bill Eckett (Trainer / Handler 2004 National Open Champion)
"Dave Rorem is the best student I have had. His ability to read dogs is outstanding and his handling skills are second to none." Rex Carr, 1995
Dave Rorem started training gundogs in the 1970s and saw his first field trial in 1977. He won his first derby in 1979 and made his first Field Champion in 1984. Since that time, he has trained and handled seven national champions in Canada, made more than 70 field champions and had more than 50 national finalists in Canada and the U.S.

Rorem credits much of his success to other trainers that he has spent time with and learned from. In his early years, he received help from Cy Sifers, Phil and Tom Berger, Roger Reopelle and D.L. Walters. Rorem spent 11 years working with his mentor, Rex Carr and credits him for the trainer and handler he is today. Rorem and Carr worked together in the Retriever Training Seminar.
