Retriever Troubleshooting: Strategies & Solutions to Retriever Training Problems

Nationally-recognized retriever trainers John and Amy Dahl (The 10-Minute Retriever) tackle advanced training methods and problem-solving using a dog's innate strengths to compensate for its weaknesses.

They discuss how dogs learn at an advanced level while encouraging readers to tailor their training so the dog keeps progressing.

Training topics include: how advanced training applies to hunting and to competition; blind retrieves; achieving range and multiple blinds; handling; hazards and formidable obstacles; more disciplined lining; marking; and the use of an e-collar in advanced field work.

Problem-solving topics include: the challenges of training high-drive dogs; controlling excitement level and related problems (creeping, breaking, vocalizing, crushing birds, freezing); mouth problems (too rough, eating birds, dropping birds, unwillingness to handle cripples); pace issues (keeping training moving and the dog challenged); inhibitions; problems related to pressure; lack of response at a distance; line manners; and hunting problems (poor perseverance, unwillingness to enter cover).

The authors also discuss good general practices and individuality in training, along with specific real-life dog training stories that help readers see how the experts deal with unique problems.
