    Excellent Book!

    This is very well done! The material contained in the book is easy to understand and follow. I'm in the process of training my German Short Hair and the procedures for training the pointer relly makes a lot of sense. Wish I had this book when i started training my Pointing Lab it would have saved me from making initial mistakes and the work that its taking to correct them
