If your puppy could walk in to a bookstore and buy one dog training book as a gift for both himself and you, the person he's taken for life, this is the book he'd choose.

Why? Because if Pup could write a dog training book-from a dog's point of view-to teach anyone how to train any breed of gun dog to fetch any bird his master wanted in hand, these are the things he would say.

And when Pup got old, after a lifetime of experience in the field, and reviewed this dog training book he would have written, he'd conclude, "I wouldn't change a word."

Hey Pup, Fetch It Up! is the complete, practical guide to retriever training starting with the basics-choosing a puppy and keeping him happy and healthy. In succeeding chapters of this dog training book, Tarrant explains how to introduce Pup to the field and teach him to cast, fetch, and retrieve. Then Tarrant tells you how to solve common retriever problems and administer canine first aid in the field. Finally, he gives advice that will increase Pup's success throughout his lifetime.

This highly readable book is packed with helpful information:
  • Details on the revolutionary force-retrieve method
  • Advice on teaching a dog to mark and fetch
  • How to introduce a dog to water
  • Techniques for correcting faults in old dogs
  • Tips on keeping your dog in top physical shape

    Bill Tarrant has been described by Hunting Retriever magazine as "one of the premier dog writers in America." He has won numerous awards, including the Outdoor Writers Association of America's prestigious Deep Woods Award, and was twice named Dog Writer of the Year by the Dog Writers Association of America.

    Whether training for hunting or field trials, you and Pup will both benefit from Tarrant's wisdom and experience. Simply put, HEY PUP is Bill Tarrant at his best.
