training book

6 posts in this topic

I have a 4 month old black lab that I plan on hunting on land and water. I have only had him about a month but i have the retrieve, stay and sit down pretty good with him. But im wondering what is a good training book or any suggestion on where to find good training tips. Also I have shot over him plenty and we are good there also. Thank You

Just a word of warning about Wolters methods - take his lessons for what they're worth and let common sense rule where it may seem to contradict him. I have heard more than a handful of stories of guys darn near ruining their dogs trying to stick to his timelines and routines.

There are many other great training resources online and in print and video. Soak up as much as you can and use the best elements from each program to suit your needs.

Good luck,

Blaze

I also bought another book called "The 10 minute retriever". It was written by a couple who do dog training and they live in MN. I find it to be a good book and its nice to get a couple different ways of doing things.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
