View: 632This fantastic and comprehensive handbook on gun dogs contains chapters on everything from breeding and selection to breaking, training, and beyond. Interspersed with photographs and useful information, "Gun Dogs" constitutes a must-have for all owners and breeders of hunting dogs, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "The Gun Dog's Kennel", "The Gun Dog and its Food", "The Selection, Examination and Trail of a Gun Dog prior to Purchase", "Gun-Dog Breeding", "Jobbing or Hiring Dogs", "Breeding and Breaking Gun Dogs for Pleasure and Profit", "The Flat-Coated Retriever", "The Labrador Retriever", "The Golden Retriever", 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.
