"Books on training dogs we already have in plenty; classical works of art some of them are without a doubt; but the practices of fifty or sixty years ago must now, through the natural course of events, be considered old-fashioned and behind the times. Not so many years ago, before a dog was considered at all good, he had to go through at least three seasons' work; now we have youngsters, little more than a year old, winning against old and so-called seasoned dogs. Why is this? Simply because the modern trainer has advanced with the times, and possesses the ability to convey to the brain of his dog as much education in six months as our forefathers were able to do in as many years. The reader of the following pages may rest assured that the author has proved, by long years of practice, every word of what he has written." Chapters include: Choosing a puppy; Early days; Begins to retrieve; Real use of thresh-cord; Introduction to game; Water work; Out on the Twelfth; St. Partridge; Getting on; Retriever trials.
