This guide is the third in the ‘Gundog Club’ retriever training series. It is aimed at those whose dogs have either passed their Grade Two award or have reached the Grade Two standard
Introducing directional control, the remote stop, gunfire and crossing obstacles, Passing Grade Three helps the handler to expand his range of skills and begin to explore some more advanced concepts. Obedience is taken to the next level and the dog is taught to work with the handler in the presence of increasing distractions.
Passing Grade Three contains three sections
- Preparation and information
- Step-by-step training instructions
- Problem solving
The emphasis at Grade Three is beginning to shift towards the combinations of skills required for retrieving in the field and this is reflected in the extent to which retrieving, and retriever skills, feature in this book.
