    I love that cover photo. I also think Carol's chapter on reading your dog, general fairness to the dog and training group manners is very good.

    For anyone fairly new or intermediate to training and following a program like Lardy or Graham or Hillman etc. This book helps fill in a ton of gaps. I'm following Lardy, but was kind of at a loss for what kind of marking scenarios to set up to help train my girl to run longer and more challenging marks. This book not only gives you lots of options for that, it tells you about drills for training dog to run into and through higher cover or over obstacles on way to mark.

    The first drill in the book is one called the Holding Blind Drill. Did this the last two days and it works like a charm.

    It has a well drawn diagram for each drill and lots of explanation for each one.
    I found out about this book on RTF and am so glad I finally ordered it. FIVE STARS!!!

    Jennifer

    Also has a lot of handling drills and many many others to help in all aspects of field training!
    If you think the book is good, just go to one of Carol's seminars if you ever get the chance!! My wife and I went to her advanced handling seminar last summer (3 days) and it was AWESOME! She makes it a lighthearted and fun atmosphere and explains things so well. Even handlers with alot of experience said they learned things that they would use in their future training. I would even go to the same seminar again in a heartbeat! Well worth every cent and a great time to boot.

    ....LOL I have one as well...along with two Fluffies ..double the reason to make the purchase!!

    Met Carol in Maine a few years ago in Dover Foxcroft of all places..and she had Val Ducross with her. It was so great to meet both. The other reason I like Carol, other than her book, is the way she is with her retrievers and the team work that I saw that weekend.

    Does anyone know of a link or web site for her and the seminar dates. Tried to Google it, but didn't find anything obvious.
