Training Your Retriever based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Lamb Free's clear and basic teaching techniques are a must for a sound hunter and trial dog. This book's step by step instructions helped produce my first two master dogs without the assistance of an electric collar. this book should be the first you buy if you're serious about training your retriever.
This book trained my dog so quickly and easly that I think that this book is assentshale to a Labrabor Retriever owener.
I just recommended this book to a friend. Training Your Retriever helped me understand that a puppy undergoes developmental changes that allow it to learn simple commands at the beginning, and more complex commands as it matures, provided that trust and communication are built. I trained my dog in a normal tone of voice and sometimes at a whisper so he would listen carefully. It saved his life several times. James Lamb Free is a master trainer so get a copy of his book even if it's used. You won't regret it.
Book includes dated training techniques and ideas. Is not current on available competitive venues.
