There has long been a disconnect between the retriever training methods in the United Kingdom and in North America. British Retriever Trials are primarily a test of the dog's skill as a game finder, while American Field Trials are a test of the handling techniques of the owner. The Brits teach their dogs to find every bird, while American handlers are training for an event in which tracking cripples plays no part. The British manner, for many American and Canadian hunters, makes more sense to them on a day-to-day basis because its aim is to produce a finished gun dog who is steady, quiet, and reliable in the field.

In 1940, a group of sportsmen of the first rank, members of the Southern Amateur Field Trial Club of Albany, Georgia, undertook to design a field trial format that would provide a more comprehensive and rigorous test of the qualities of high class bird dogs. Dubbed the “dream trial” by William F. Brown at its inaugural offering, the trial, the Quail Championship, was contested in 1941, and 1942 in the quail-rich plantation country in the Albany, Georgia area. Interrupted by World War II, the trial remained as only a bright and shining memory until 1964 when it was resurrected as the Quail Championship Invitational in 1964 at Paducah, Kentucky. Limited to twelve invited contestants, the best of the previous year’s major circuit competition, the trial seeks to identify a bird dog with strength, courage, intelligence, and character at the highest level, the “best of the best.” True to its origin, the trial provides the most comprehensive and equitable test of the major circuit dogs of the field trial sport.

The retrieve is one of the most difficult skills for most dogs to master in competitive obedience. It is difficult because it involves a series of steps that the dog must learn in order to retrieve the object and get high scores. More and more trainers are realizing that teaching a complex series of behaviors like this is most easily done through the use of clicker training—using the same techniques used by large animal trainers working with whales, dolphins—even elephants.The Clicked Retriever teaches you step-by-step how to clicker train your dog to do a solid, enthusiastic and reliable retrieve. Learning no-force techniques builds trust between you and your dog, makes training more enjoyable for both of you, and sets you up for life long training success built on scientific principles, respect and fun.
