Just ok

I found maybe half of the content useful. More focus on actual training was expected. The narrator’s voice is clear but can be irritating, as his enunciation is laborious and the cadence not flowing.

a fish to fly

I am 2.36 in, and the comment about poodles! they actually make amazing gun dogs! this comment got very, very much under my skin. I have a standard poodle who could out retrieve a lot of my friends labs. and is actually from a line of gun dogs. I was reading this to work on some skills and things. But that got under my skin. and the reader........

Gun dog Training Like a Pro

The narrator is absolutely ridiculous. Extremely distracting to potentially good instruction. Almost like he is mocking a real narrator and trying to be funny.

Inaccuracies

Lacks knowledge of litter sizes and provides skewed information. Presents opinions as facts. There is some good information here but without knowing what to look for it’s dangerous to use.

Awesome Book for Beginner!

I recently moved out west and now have over 1000 acres of hunt-able land. As an experienced deer hunter out east, I decided to try my hand at birds. Of course, one of the first things that comes to mind is a bird dog. Problem is I only have experience with German Shepherds. Not your everyday bird retriever. So I picked up this book and my problem is solved. As a novice, this book tells me the breeds I need to be looking at and a step-by-step guide to training the dog to be an awesome and obedient gundog. He also uses tips from seasoned veterans in the gundog world. I am looking forward to putting these practices to work (have to decide on a breed first) and to having a great relationship with my new best friend.

Dog training guide!

my girlfriend and I think to get our first dog, but we are still in the process of searching to find the best bread to fit better our lifestyles and work schedule, we have no immense knowledge about dogs in general only some basic information about some breeds, this book has helped us really find the best fit for us and also how to train our "Shih Tzu" in the best way to be the dog we want. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to expand his/her knowledge about dogs and the best way to train them.
