15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Dwight I. Trumbull on February 14, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Sue and Norm Sorby literally wrote the book on pointing dogs with this one. It not only tells you how to train a Gordon Setter (or any other pointing breed of the finest quality field stock), but also how to pick a pup, when to train, how to deal with different personalities (yours and the dogs), showing, field trialing, and breeding. In short the essential guide for anyone interested in getting the most from a great hunting dog. The book is written in such a way that even a first time bird dog owner can understand and come away with a "I can do this!" attitude. A must read for anyone considering the purchase of a "hunting companion." Thanks Sue and Norm!

Format: Hardcover
After being owned by a Gordon for seven years and now re-reading the book, it is obvious how well the Sorbys know these dogs. They have great insight into the inner workings of the mind of the Gordon in how the dog deals with other dogs, training, field and confirmation competitions. I do not hunt but these are great dogs and the book is as close to an owner's manual as you can get. I wish children came with a book like this.

Format: Hardcover
Having had several "pointing" dogs I thought that I knew everything. Then I purchased a Gordon Setter from the Author and WOW! The breed is peerless and the book is more than a "how to"" guide. The insights and training tips for the breed are excellent. The humor is great! I give it 4 paws up!
