Hey everyone. The response to training tips has been great. Wanted to be clear where these tips come from. Mostly they are from my 40 plus years of having bird dogs, but lots of them are from the books I have read on the subject. This is not a research paper and I am not going to look up and cite where these tips came from. For the most part I don't even remember where they came from. Well some... Delmar Smith, Best Way To Train Your Gun Dog, Dave Walker, The Bird Dog Training Manual, and Tom Dokken, Retriever Training. These guys are great trainers. Get their books. Read them cover to cover. My copy of Smith's book looks like it got run over by my truck and Walker's is on the way. Dokken is fairly new to me, but is definitely a great one. So all that to say, great dog trainers are like great bird dogs. Great dogs, beget great dogs. Great dog trainers, beget great dog trainers. Let's just say this so nobody gets confused. None of these tips are original to me. Credit goes to "whoever deserves it". Thanks for allowing me to take from the best and get it into your hands. It's what we do with Labs. It's what we do with dog training. We ride on the shoulders of the best and thank them for all they have done. I hope these tips are helpful to you.
