This book is a great tool, It;'s the 2nd or 3rd I've purchased. I keep loaning them out after five labs and somehow they never seem to make it back!!

I have been using this book along side with the Gun Dog book from the same author. It breaks everything down for a beginner like myself, no matter what you want your dog trained for. I would recommend this book.
