Nationally-recognized retriever trainers John and Amy Dahl (The 10-Minute Retriever) tackle advanced training methods and problem-solving using a dog's innate strengths to compensate for its weaknesses.They discuss how dogs learn at an advanced level while encouraging readers to tailor their training so the dog keeps progressing.Training topics include: how advanced training applies to hunting and to competition; blind retrieves; achieving range and multiple blinds; handling; hazards and formidable obstacles; more disciplined lining; marking; and the use of an e-collar in advanced field work.Problem-solving topics include: the challenges of training high-drive dogs; controlling excitement level and related problems (creeping, breaking, vocalizing, crushing birds, freezing); mouth problems (too rough, eating birds, dropping birds, unwillingness to handle cripples); pace issues (keeping training moving and the dog challenged); inhibitions; problems related to pressure; lack of response at a distance; line manners; and hunting problems (poor perseverance, unwillingness to enter cover).The authors also discuss good general practices and individuality in training, along with specific real-life dog training stories that help readers see how the experts deal with unique problems.
