    Classic training guide. Very useful. The colloquial 1961 language makes me laugh and offends my spouse, but it is my go to reference for all things bird dog training.

    Excellent books. Used them over 15 years ago to train a chocolate lab. These training methods produced an excellent retreiver(waterfowl) and dual tasked upland hunter. Lost the books and found them at gun dog supply. Training a new lab pup and hope to have the same results.

    I acquired a beagle/Boston Terrier Mix pup around 8 months old over 2 and half years ago he just turned 3.I am sure he was a Pet store dog with no pedigree in him. I know he has an amazing nose I just need to control it. He is the first dog I have tried to train. I didn't start training him until he turned 3. In one session using Wolters method I had him quartering a field and then in another 10 min session I had him taking a dummy from my hand on Fetch command. From what I have heard from many diffrent people terriers and beagles are stubborn to training and this dog is a very dominant dog. So for me being a very novice trainer and to have a Petstore dog with no working genes in him and to get results like that, I think the book speaks for itself. I know all dogs are diffrent and require diffrent situations but to use Wolters books as a general guide line for training I think any novice can get some kind of results
