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.
