He does a nice job developing a dog in an appropriate fashion. There is not an Easy Button with his technique, just honest, thoughtful, application of proven methodology. It takes work, but the results are worth the effort! Thank you Mo!

By: Bennie Atkinson From AL

I currently have 7 German Shorthair Pointers that I have trained using a different method, and they are spot on in the field. With that said, this book contains great alternative ideas to training hunting dogs that seem to be very effective. I am going to incorporate in to my training on a new 10 week old that I have just gotten to start working with.

Training with Mo back cover

Training With Mo focuses on how to best train pointing dogs and how to do it with compassion. Author Martha Greenlee has used Maurice Lindley's methods while training her own pointing dogs, and she describes these methods in a clear and concise manner.

Lindley ("Mo" as he is called by friends and family) jointly owns and operates the family business, Lindley's Kennel. He is a professional dog trainer, and his brother Bobby takes care of the boarding facility. Mo's wife Kaye is the glue that holds it all together by taking part in both kennel and training efforts.

Born and raised in Greenville County, South Carolina, Maurice still lives in the same area. Even as a youngster, he worked with dogs. At the age of 10, he and his brother went hunting with a neighbor who raised English setters. With that very first point and covey rise, Lindley says he "was hooked for life" on pointing dogs. He trained his first pointing dog, a German shorthaired, for a client when he was just 16 years old.

Lindley has been training pointing dogs for almost 30 years, having trained pointing dogs for hunting, field trials, and hunt tests, as well as amateurs who compete in field events, such as American Field, AKC, and NSTRA. A gifted teacher, he is able to communicate the reasoning behind his training methods to both the handler and the dog. Often Kaye will be there, helping with communication using sign language.

This is because Lindley cannot hear the spoken word. A little over a decade ago, he contracted Meniere's disease, an inner-ear disorder that resulted in the loss of his hearing. When you watch Mo work dogs, you quickly come to believe that his communication skills have been enhanced with an extraordinary ability that replaces audible sound. He makes an obvious but valid point when he says: "Dogs don't speak English."

Years ago Lindley began searching for training methods that relied less on voice and more on other types of communication with the dog. Often loud voice commands will unintentionally frighten a dog. He worked with several well-known trainers, including Bill Gibbons, Dave Walker, and Bill West. Combining their knowledge and experience with his own, he determined that dogs prefer communication through visual and physical contact, not verbal. Body language is a key part of Mo's training method. This, of course, applies to all parties involved in a training session, both dog and trainer.
