    Default Training Book

    Can anyone recommend a good training manual that is similar to the Tritronics Training Book? I love the diagrams and general layout of the book. Anything else out there that is a must have?
    Thanks

    Not much information to work with. What kind of dog? What are going to be doing with your dog? In otherwords, training for what?

    If you are wanting information on training a retriever, I recommend Vol 1 of Mike Lardy's Retriever Journal training articles. It is only $25 and can be bought at YBS meida.

    Are you looking for training drills? If so, take a look at Carol Cassity's "Building a Retriever - Drills & More"

    Mostly looking for training drills, I hope to do hunt tests and maybe some derbies/field trials. And of course Hunting water fowl and upland.

    Based on your stated goals you will need more than a book. Pls share what kind of dog you have and age. I will try to give you some suggestions to get started.

    I think this is a great book, especially for new trainers learning drills. My wife and I each have this book. The one we use in the field I cut apart and laminated every page then put each page in clear 3 hole pocket folders and inserted them all in a 2 inch three ring binder. It works great to lay out on the back of a tailgate, etc., to look at the diagrams, instructions etc.. If you are training with a group, everyone can look at it. Completely weather proof too.
