Training With An Expert

Millions of retriever owners would like to develop their puppies into well-trained hunting companions, but they have difficulty finding the time or may lack the experience or patience to train a dog properly. Now, help is here in the form of a new book from Tom Dokken, owner of Dead Fowl Training Products and the world's leading expert on training retrievers.

Tom Dokken's Retriever Training: The Complete Guide to Developing Your Hunting Dog contains training regimens designed to fit into today's busy schedules. Readers will find training programs that take only 10 minutes a day and, with time, will produce a devoted, well-mannered companion and hunting partner. The author guides readers through puppy training, introduction to gunfire, obedience, marking, hand signals and training for upland game. To be released in mid-June, the book sells for $19.99 and will be available at all major outdoor retailers and at www.krausebooks.com.
