And the fault is not only in the breeding but in the training, both of which render a dog better suited for field trialing than hunting. Time out! Says Milner, as he shows us how to pick a pup that will likely be calm and obedient, and then how to train that pup on the basics of steadiness and obedience to create the perfect hunting and at-home companion. Milner, who has been training retrievers professionally for more than 30 years, reverses the trend of difficult dogs and difficult training methods and offers a system every hunter can understand and follow.
