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.
