" This book is now my go to book for retriever training, it is quite simply the best book I have read on the subject. Laura Hill has been there and done it with her dogs, and she has now produced a book which imparts her knowledge in a way that both makes you look at how you are training your dog, and how you can improve your own skills and thereby your dogs performance. If you are training a retriever this is the book to buy. "
