About the Author

A native Coloradoan, Cherylon Loveland has been training all breeds of retrievers for over 20 years. While associated with Duncan Labradors, she assisted in the training of competitive field trial dogs. She now has her own training kennel, Hunt-Field, and trains both hunting and field trial dogs.
Clarice Rutherford is co-author of How to Raise a Puppy You Can Live With and Retriever Working Certificate Training. Both authors agree that the tingle that they get in their spine as they watch a retriever working out a difficult problem in the field is special-like no other feeling. It's what keeps retriever people working with their dogs regardless of weather, rough terrain, and long, hard days.

Retriever Puppy Training: The Right Start For Hunting by canine training experts Clarice Rutherford and Cherylon Loveland is a superbly organized and presented instructional guide to the art and science of training a hunting dog. From selecting the right puppy, to identifying and working with your puppy's personality traits, to solidly adhering to a chosen training program, Retriever Puppy Training is an excellent, concise, no-nonsense, "user friendly" reference to helping a young, eager-to-please puppy become the best hunting dog it can be.

This book covers all the steps in teaching a puppy the basics of retriever training. There are no stories or tall tales to fill in the gaps like in the Water Dog book. This is all straight forward retriever training. I recommend this book to everyone I meet that is wanting to learn how to train a dog to retrieve. The authors have added drills to work on after teaching certain stages and I feel these are very helpful. Also, there are check list after some steps and chapters that let me know if my dog and I are doing that particular step correctly. I've never read another book on retriever training that has as much information in it as this one.

The first half of the book is everything from choosing a puppy to house training your puppy. The second half is the beginning training of retrieving. A must especially for first time retriever puppy owners. Everyone of my puppies goes to their new home with a copy.

While I don't agree with some of their training techniques (stinging your pup with a slingshot??) there is good information here and the section on puppy personalities is worth the price of admission. I have trained 3 other labs using the Wolters technique and while my dogs have never been "robots" they have all been impressive hunters and family members. With my new pup I am sticking with Wolters but implementing some of the ideas from this book, Tom Dokken and Bill Hillmann.

Good solid book to use to get your retriever off to a good start. Very good information regarding older dogs in the house and proper bonding of the puppy.

This is a good book for both the first time dog owner or a old timer like me. I like the step by step format and list of equipment needed for each step. The book also contains a number of step on how to correct mistakes.
