With Absolutely Positively Gundog Training, Milner has taken the latest scientific research into how dogs learn and combined it with his own vast experience and commonsense training methods. The result is an approach that is as effective as it is easy. For the hunter who wants a calm, steady, and obedient retriever, there's no better training method. This book provides everything needed for you to turn out a sporting dog that excels at life. Whether you want your dog to be a gundog, a water dog, a shed dog, an upland dog, a deer tracker or a fishing companion, this book charts the course Every other page exclaims, "That makes perfect sense." Milner debunks a number of groundless myths and counter-productive training practices that proliferate in today's sporting dog culture. A big divide exists today in the gundog sector in America. The opposing views are tradition-based compulsion training versus the science-based positive training model derived from B.F. Skinner's operant conditioning theory. Robert Milner's new book bridges that gap. Milner brings to the table vast experience in both training methods. He has trained over two thousand gundogs with traditional compulsion and has trained several hundred gundogs with a positive training model. He pronounces the positive model a definitive winner. His new book covers all the bases for a beginning gundog trainer. Milner covers the dog's history and domestication as it relates to training. He shows you how the dog perceives the world, how the dog communicates, and how he learns. Big surprises await some readers. Milner cites many examples of recent dog research that upend traditional training theories. This book gives the reader a simple roadmap to success in producing a gundog that is extremely well-mannered, a persistent hunter and very responsive on whistle stops and hand signals. The simplicity of the training model will be a pleasant surprise to many new trainers. Most importantly, Milner's training model is fun for the trainer and the dog.

The Pet Gundog has been written for all those dog owners, who like me, have a gundog breed sharing their home. Introducing you to the psychology of the dog, common sense behaviour advice is given on how to achieve harmony in your mixed-species pack. Basic training and good manners are covered, after all, who wants to live with a bolshie, bad mannered gundog? A toe-dipping foray into the world of shooting gives you an insight into what your dog has been bred for. The book then covers how to exploit your gundog's innate behaviour so that walks become a pleasure, your home stays intact and you have a happy, contented and fulfilled pet gundog. "This is one of the most refreshing books on dog training that I have read for many years. This is a book about practical training with an immense and clear description of the underlying behaviour within our pet dogs and how we can utilise those intrinsic drives to enhance the training of our dogs. This book should be a prerequisite for dog owners to read - is not just of use for those who own Gundog breeds, but for all dog owners. The author has an informal and empathetic style of writing that leaves the reader not only with factual, common sense good solid dog training, but amusing anecdotes and helpful explanations throughout which results in leaving the reader feeling as if they know the author personally. So good do I believe this book to be, I recommended it to numerous clients before its publication!"
