Nothing in a retriever's genes inclines him to do blind retrieves. We must drill it into the dog until it becomes a conditioned response. In this hunting dog training book, Spencer has compiled an extensive collection of drills that have, for the most part, been developed by professional field trial trainers and spread by word of mouth. Now, for the first time, they are available in book form for use by amateurs and professionals alike. Each drill is diagrammed, plus Spencer carefully explains the purpose, prerequisites, necessary equipment, and pitfalls to avoid.
