Re: Education Materials & Tips for Raising a Working Pup

Rick I can pretty much agree about "just reading or watching video".

That is hugely dependent on understanding dog behavior before you start to actually apply it.

I trained my first dog in '57 with a book but before that I spent a lot of time with an old bird dog man who taught me a ton before I ever touched a dog in training and he was always there to answer any questions

That book was THE STANDARD BOOK OF DOG CARE by Jeanette W. Cross and Blanche Saunders.

650 pages and the second half is all training.

Saunders was one of the founders and promoter of AKC obedience training in the 30s.

Still have the book.

Koehler's books were also some of my first training books. Still have those also. Mostly from the 60s.

I joined my first formal training class in the mid 60s.

I've said it often that some people are naturals, some can learn it and some will forever remain clueless in spite of any "training" they attempt.
The words of a fool offend only another fool!
