Today we're looking at Jerome Robinson's "Ultimate Guide to Bird Dog Training." This is one of my favorite books that we sell, mainly because it's highly focused on birds in training. It's designed for the walking upland hunter who is looking for a closer working dog, for folks that have the ability to use a lot of birds in their training.
Birds are a key part of training, but Jerome really focuses on that. And it's a key part of how he introduces the dogs to everything. So I've just enjoyed the method. It works well. But keep in mind you've got to have access to a lot of birds and you've got to have the ability to work your dog on a lot of birds for this method to work for you.
Check it out. "Ultimate Guide to Bird Dog Training."
Well written and easy to understand. In-depth information makes it easy to understand how to train a dog to hunt. I have never hunted a dog before, so I bought it more to understand the intricacies of the point, flush, force fetch and how to train. Ideally, if I had more land, more time and birds regularly available to me, I would use this book a lot more.
