Starting Your Puppy the Wildrose Way
My son Sam has a field-bred Labrador who he is currently training and I bought him the book Sporting Dog and Retriever Training The Wildrose Way: Raising a Gentleman's Gundog for Home and Field for Christmas. Wildrose has a big program in the retrieving world and although the gundogs are not my primary focus, I have a huge appreciation for the work that they do. Much of the basic training that Wildrose covers can apply beautifully to a well-raised Barbet puppy. I highly recommend this book. Wildrose also has a new line of short puppy training videos, with another released each week, added to their extensive video library. Check out these links for a great perspective on raising a well-mannered sporting dog.
