How to Make an Obedient and Enthusiastic Gun Dog in 10 Minutes a Day

The 10-Minute Retriever reflects the authors’ beliefs that daily ten-minute training sessions best suit a retriever’s attention span and lead to rapid learning. This dog training book is easy to use for the absolute beginner and yet deeply informative for the serious student of retriever training. The text has the information most needed by the owner of a pet retriever: how to make it reliably obedient and well-mannered. It also has the information for which amateur retriever trainers are clamoring: how to force fetch, how to set up tests in the field, and how to use an electric collar humanely and effectively. The emphasis of their training method is on obtaining necessary control and good manners while maximizing the dog’s enthusiasm for its work by establishing training situations where the dog desires to cooperate. Primary importance is placed on developing and enhancing the desire to retrieve, from early puppyhood onward. The method presented provides a solid foundation to the dog and owner continuing to advance retrieve training (blind retrieves and competition). Concepts and methods are illustrated with true dog stories. Differences between the major breeds are described and adaptations are given for the different breed personalities.

Customer Testimonals

The service was very nice. Exactly what I ordered came exactly when you said it would. I was able to track the package's status on UPS's web site from the tracking number I received from your shipment... -Tony S. - Monona, WI

I would like to thank you for such a speedy order processing with prompt delivery and accuracy. My experience with on-line shopping for my firearms needs have been to say the least disappointing. Next... -Thanks again, Curt C - Gallatin, TN
