"Mike Gould is the most brilliant gun dog trainer in the world. He has raised dog training to a higher plane. Mike's dogs are happy dogs, enthused and birdy dogs, hunting fools, who love their human companions and bond with them so the two of them become a hunting machine miraculous to see. 'The Labrador Shooting Dog' is the best dog training book I've ever read-and I've read 'em all!"-Bill Tarrant, late gun dog editor of Field & Stream and author of 12 dog training books as well as the Pulitzer-Prize nominated "The Magic of Dogs." " 'The Labrador Shooting Dog' is just what it says-it's about dogs that think on their feet, dogs that will take you hunting. It's a great read for the beginner or the professional. Even more important, it touches on the spiritual connection between man, his dog and their environment."-Jim Charlton, professional Labrador breeder and trainer, featured in Bill Tarrant's "Training the Versatile Retriever" and "Gun Dog Training: New Strategies from Today's Top Trainers." -- Publisher Comments
From the Publisher
"Mike Gould is known as one of the greatest thinkers in the world of dog training. He uses love, dedication and a clearly defined structure to train a super-confident shooting dog in the most humane way possible. Some of his comments in 'The Labrador Shooting Dog' are sure to raise the hackles of some of the guys who are deep into field trial training, shock collar training and forceful field training, but this book isn't for them. This book is for the millions of dog owners whose Labradors are part of the family-pet, hunting companion, protector, buddy, and friend. 'The Labrador Shooting Dog' will make ultimate sense to those people who love their dogs as part of the family and want to see them excel in the field as the best possible gun dogs they can be. I think this book is destined to become the classic work in the field of Labrador retrievers." -Gary Hubbell, publisher, Clinetop Press
