  • In the Bag! : Labrador Training from Puppy to Gundog

    In the Bag! offers a fresh approach to gundog training for beginners and seasoned trainers alike.


    It contains sound advice on the selection of your Labrador Retriever and valuable information regarding care and management from puppy to veteran. It gives step-by-step guidance on training and how to make smooth progress towards the finished article: a Labrador that is a pleasure in the home as well as in the field, and a reliable shooting companion who puts game in the bag.


    Margaret Allen has been successfully training, trialling, breeding and showing Labradors since 1964. Trying to understand the workings of the canine mind has always held a fascination for Margaret and she believes that in order to train your dog successfully, you should make it your chief objective to find out what makes them tick.


    In this book you will learn how your dog thinks, reacts and learns. Our working Labrador has been bred for generations to retrieve game - it should not, therefore, be hard work to turn them into a Gundog. It should be fun! This book will help you make it so.
