The Competitive Gundog : Field Trials and Working Tests. Dear The Competitive Gundog : Field Trials and Working Tests. Dear

Competing with your gundog is great fun, but many owners are unaware of the many year-round training and competitive opportunities in which they can be involved. Many also think that the skills required are above them, and that such events are available only to the very experienced amateur or the gundog professional. This is very far from the truth.

Sporting Terriers : Their Form, Their Function and Their Future. Hancock. Sporting Terriers : Their Form, Their Function and Their Future. Hancock.

This book is about sporting terriers, that much-loved, quintessentially British, quite admirable group of dogs, favoured for centuries by the more humble type of hunter. Sporting Terriers is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition and dog care; it is a celebration of terriers' contribution to the sporting scene, an examination of their form, their function and their future in an increasingly urban society.

Rabbiting Terriers : Their Work and Training. Bezzant. Rabbiting Terriers : Their Work and Training. Bezzant.

Britain is the undisputed home of the terrier. There are over twenty breeds and although each one is a capable hunting dog, over the centuries some breeds of terriers have proved themselves to be more suited to rabbiting than others. The 'rabbiting terriers' have many common characteristics and in this fascinating book the author analyses these attributes in order to describe the height, weight, shape, stamina and intelligence of the 'ideal' rabbiting terrier.

Gundogs: Their Past, Their Performance and Their Prospects. Hancock, Gundogs: Their Past, Their Performance and Their Prospects. Hancock,

This book is about gundogs, those ever-willing companions of both sportsmen and discerning dog owners. Gundogs is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition, and dog care; it is very much a celebration of the gundog's contribution to the sporting and companion dog scene, an examination of their past, their performance, and their prospects in an increasingly urban society. Painstakingly researched, it covers the well-known recognized breeds and the more obscure ones from overseas, some quite unknown to the public.

Understanding the Working Lurcher. Drakeford. Understanding the Working Lurcher. Drakeford.

The lurcher has been with us for thousands of years. Large or small, rough or smooth, images of lurchers have appeared over the years in paintings, in tapestries, or on pottery. What is the attraction of these dogs? Perhaps it lies in the strong bond that must be formed as a result of the close working relationship a hunting dog must forge with its master. From selection of a suitable lurcher to fitness, training, working, and breeding Understanding the Working Lurcher offers sound, common-sense advice based on years of experience.

Working with Dogs for Deer. Sondergaard Working with Dogs for Deer. Sondergaard

The purpose of this book is to offer advice to people who work with dogs to find wounded deer. Sadly, deer are occasionally wounded by stalkers or by traffic, but when it happens a well trained dog is the most important asset in the effort to end the suffering as quickly and humanely as possible.
The knowledge used to train and work with dogs for deer has been developed over generations, but it is important to emphasise that this field is definitely an art and not a science. The recommendations in this book have worked well for the author and many of the handlers who have generously offered their advice, but they are clearly not the only way to do things.
