Training Tips from Dokken

Millions of retriever owners would like to develop their puppies into well-trained hunting companions, but they have difficulty finding the time or might lack the experience or patience to train a dog properly. Now, help is here in the form of a new book from Tom Dokken, owner of Dead Fowl Training Products and a leading expert on training retrievers.

Tom Dokken's Retriever Training: The Complete Guide to Developing Your Hunting Dog contains training regimens designed to fit into today's busy schedules. The author guides readers through puppy training, introduction to gunfire, obedience, marking, hand signals and training for upland game. Scheduled for release in mid-June, the book will be available at all major outdoor retailers and at Krause Books.
