This vintage book contains a complete guide to training a dog for hunting birds, with chapters on selection and breeding, breaking, psychology, equipment, and much more. Interspersed with personal anecdotes, this highly-readable handbook will appeal to modern hunters, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of vintage sporting literature. Contents include: "First Days in the Field", "Getting on Game", "Gun-Shyness and Retrieving", "Hunting Quail and Pheasants", "A Successful Pheasant Hunt", "Wonderful Work", "Steadying to Shot and Wing", "A Little Canine Psychology", "Further Facts and Anecdotes", "Finishing Touches", "Things to be Aware Of", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on gun dogs.
