    Default Springer Training Program

    My cousin's 12 year old boy just got a springer pup (9 wks old) and his summer project is to train this dog himself. What are some good programs to follow (books, videos, etc.). Any hep is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Pam Kadlec has a book entitled "Retriever Training for Spaniels". Very easy for a 12 year old to read and understand.

    Paul Morrison also has a couple of books on spaniels. I used his and HUP to train my AWS.

    There are no sequential training "programs" per se for spaniel training like there is for retriever training. However there is lots of information in both books and and online on the subject I have a spaniel as well. The 3 books I used most were Hup!, Urban Gun Dog Training by Roettger and Scheidler and Training Spaniels and Retrievers by Kenneth Roebuck.
