Of all 7 pointing dog training books I own, this is by far the best, most detailed and intelligently written. I had no idea how to train my first GSP and no one to teach me. With this book as my guide, I trained three female GSP to the following titles: 3 AKC Master Hunters, 1 NAVHDA Utility Prize II, 2 NAVHDA Utility Prize I and 1 NAVHDA Versatile Champion, without any help from my husband, who wasn't interested in training dogs. No harsh corrections were ever necessary, both due to the training techniques and the nature of the dogs involved. My Roebuck book was highlighted, underlined, written in the margins and read and reread many times to insure I followed the directions exactly as they were written. Needless to say, I am happy with the results.
