Your guide to training the Retriever as a finished Upland and Waterfowl Dog. The definitive guide from training expert Julie Knutson takes you and your dog from puppyhood to bird mastery.

"In Training the Pointing Retriever, trainer Julie Knutson has effectively put forth the definitive resource for pointing retrievers and their owners. ... Written in an easy-to-follow style, this book teaches and entertains; it will become a favorite for pointing retriever and bird dog owners." - Vickie Lamb, author of The Ultimate Hunting Dog Reference Book, columnist in The Retriever Journal, Just Labs, and Hunting Retriever magazines among others.

"Julie Knutson writes excellent, straightforward advice for Retriever believers. This easy to follow book is for the retriever enthusiast wanting a refresher on how to choose, raise and train a retriever. Although the title indicates the book is about Pointing Retrievers, much of the information is enlightening for any Retriever owner. If you want a first class hunting dog, you can't go wrong following Julie's step-by-step process." - Jackie Mertens, breeder of competitive Retrievers since 1968.

Knutson has trained and competed with dogs all her life. She has titled more than 40 Grand Master Pointing Retrievers, dozens of Master Hunters, hundreds of pointing and hunt test titles and numerous field trial dogs. Training dogs has been her lifelong passion.

Just getting started but the overview looks like it will cover everything I need for the versatile hunting dog. Like the idea of breed specific training book.

Great book that could have been edited better. That being said, Julie is highly respected as a trainer. And while my puppy is still young, the training methods are true to life and pretty much going as she described. Would recommend this to anyone even if there dog doesn't point. They would still get a lot of great dog training information and methods out of this. Her method will not only give you a hunting dog, but you will have a lifelong companion that loves to hunt, especially with you.

Well written book with a simple concept. And only time will tell if my lab becomes a pointing/retrieving stud in the field.

Julie provides a thoughtful and constructive perspective on all the aspects of developing a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with your new family member. This will be our 5th lab and 6th hunting do in 33 years. Many of her comments on the do's and don't are spot on. I should have read it before. She adds much much more as well.

Julie's explanations and insights into a dogs mind are spot on and extremely helpful. The stories add great reference, and her methods have been quite effective. I look forward to Kirby becoming a fine hunting dog like Hank. Fantastic book. I recommend to anyone getting a hunting dog, no matter the style of hunting.
