About This Item
Sporting Dog and Retriever Training: The Wildrose Way: Raising a Gentleman's Gundog for Home and Field is a comprehensive guide to transforming your dog into a valuable wing-shooting companion in the field and at home. Created by Mike Stewart of Wildrose Kennels, the Wildrose Way is a unique, low-force, positive training method that is field-proven for upland and waterfowl gundogs.
The training found in this book prepares dogs for versatility—any game, any terrain, any destination—and makes them desirable companions for any situation. Now, for the first time, Stewart’s methods are compiled in one indispensable reference book, fully illustrated with photographs and diagrams. Containing chapters on establishing essential behaviors, the core skills of the hunting retriever, and waterdog finishing work, as well as sidebars on such topics as breed selection and effective canine leadership, this step-by-step book is designed specifically for wing-shooters who want to transform their pup into a gentleman’s gundog.

Well written and very informative.
This book has got to be one of the best purchases I have made on the topic of dogs. I plan on someday training myself a bird dog and this book goes in deep depth of not just training a dog but for preparing for one beforehand too! I'm very glad I bought this book before I decide to buy a canine and I highly suggest it not only for hunting dog owners but regular dog owners as well! This book focuses on gentle reinforcement rather than discipline as well which is always a plus for a future dog owner like me who prefers gentle reinforcement over hard enforcement.
