A list of useful books and videos for dog training:

* David Lisset Springer Spaniel training 4 DVD series. Anyone getting a springer should buy the whole series... if you follow it you will end up with a dog the envy of most. Lisset has been the most successful trialer in the UK in recent years and has not just won most if not all of the major championships, he's done it with several dogs and often has the first two or even three placings in these events. GDT cannot recommend this material highly enough. www.paulfrenchvideo.com

* The Complete Guide To Bird Dog Training'  by John R Falk.  Can be bought off Amazon.  A very good book which looks at 6 pointing and 4 flushing breeds, incl. ESS.  It also includes yard training,  field trips and formal training.  Very good book.

* Game Dog by Richard Wolters.

* Gundog Sense and Sensibility by Wilson Stevens is an absolute cracker. It is hard to get hold of as it may be out of print - use bookfinder.com to locate it.

* Training DVDs put out by Paul French Video in the UK> They film all of the big trials and have a mountain of awesome material.

Paul French hunt point and retrieve masterclass.

* "The 10 Minute Retriever" - book.

* Dr Leon Mortensons book on training bird dogs.



The Tom Brechney Masterclass DVDs are quite good.  The first one is very basic puppy stuff (good for first time handlers and refreshing your techniques) but the second one takes you out in the field and I found useful as to what you can expect and how to achieve it.  As with most DVDs there is not much in the way of correcting problems.  Though if you are quick you may spot him "reminding" a dog to stay at heel.


Derry Argue had a couple of quite good DVDs. The methods are very like what we use here.

'The Pointing Instinct' and 'Game for Gundog Training'.

I  bought an excellent book on dogs recently. It is titled " DOGS " by Dr. Bruce Fogle. Published 2006.
It is well illustrated and more breeds of gundogs and hunting dogs than Ihave seen in other books.
Breeds like the Dutch Partridge dog, French Pyrenean pointer and the Istrian Smooth -coated hound to name a few. Also the New Zealand Huntaway - the only book I've seen that in. A good reference book.
Something else that may be of interest -- some years ago I found a copy of the first English Kennel Club stud book 1859-74. It has accounts of early field trials for pointers and setters. Retrievers are just listed as black ,liver ,curly or wavy coated. Before Labradors were established.
  

The older I get-- -  the better I was.

The Working Springer Spaniel By Keith Erlandson

Gundog Training by K Erlandson

Gundog training -Spaniels and Retrievers by Kenneth Roebuck

Spaniels -Their Breaking for Sport and Field Trials by H W Carlton , this book was first published in 1915 but is still relavent today , I got a 1931 5th edition for $15 US inc freight off the net .

I ended up with quite  a collection of titles but the above  are the best
  

Shooting is the most fun you can legally have with your clothes on .
Proverbs 12:27
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
