Training the Working Spaniel makes it simple for anyone to train a gundog, no matter what facilities are available. From training the urban gundog; how to keep a working dog in a family home; and introducing first-timers to working a spaniel in a variety of shooting situations, the author takes the reader to competing in field trials at the highest levels. Advanced work in the field, rough shooting, picking-up, and training as a peg dog are also covered. The final part of the book introduces the reader to elite spaniel work in field trials as well as guidance on breeding your own dogs.
