Summary
"Traditional gundog training is based on compulsion and rooted in a picture of the dogy's nature as similar to a wolf with much emphasis on dominance and sub ordinance. Milner turns that theory upside down citing research which finds that wolf packs operate in cooperative family groups with minimal factors of dominance. Dogs, Milner believes, learn much faster with a cooperative training model. Milner has chucked compulsion and embraced reward as the primary training tool. He gives the reader a simple, reasonable easy-to-perform training model. His extensive practical experience leads him to condense gundog training down to a few critical behaviors. Milner gives the reader clear concise instructions producing those behaviors to develop an excellent gundog who excels also as a family dog. This is a book on how to manage the strong instincts of retrievers and influence them to work for you and with you to produce a valuable companion that enhances your outdoors experience, be it hunting ducks, or fishing for trout, or hiking in the back country."--Page [4] cover
