Product Details
This heavily illustrated full-color volume includes thorough discussions on 76 spaniel, retriever, pointer, hound, and versatile breeds. A history of the use and development of sporting dogs in North American is also included, as well as chapters on selecting a puppy, training, anatomy, pedigrees, and breeding. This book is written and compiled by hunters for hunters. The authors were hand-picked for their experience and expertise with the sporting breeds. They have spent collectively more than a century in the field — hunting, observing, and formulating their opinions of the sporting breeds. These experts acquired their experience and knowledge in the field — not the show ring — walking endless miles behind bird dogs; sitting next to retrievers in countless duck blinds and goose pits; and following the clarion baying of a hound on hot scent. They bring their insight and experience to every page.
