Item description for The Scientific Education of Dogs For the Gun (History of Shooting Series - Gundogs & Training) (History of Shooting Series) by NEVILL FITT H....
THE SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION OF DOGS FOR THE GUN.
By "H.H." (H. Nevill Fitt.)
This early gundog training book was first published in London 1890, and is now very rare in its first edition.
READ COUNTRY BOOKS have now republished it using the original text.
This is one of the earliest books devoting the majority of its contents to the training to the gun of Pointers and Setters.
The author writes from his then thirty seven years of practical experience, beginning with his first successfully trained Pointer as a teenager. Some of his methods will prove controversial, but the overall advice given in this book has easily stood the test of time and will benefit all first time trainers or anyone wishing to improve on their present methods.
Two hundred and twenty pages contain sixteen detailed chapters dealing with:- "The Rationale." -- Kennel Management. -- Retrievers ( 4 chapters). -- Wild Fowling. -- Pointers and Setters (8 chapters). -- Field Trials. -- Spaniels. The eight chapters concentrating on the "breaking" or training of Pointers and Setters will prove of enormous interest to shooting men, field triallers, and falconers.
The author's admiration for the reasoning power of the dog, which makes itself evident on every page, will assuredly be shared by all who read this book.
