Pointers and Setters

This is an excellent book for owners of Pointers and Setters who want to work their dogs. There is good coverage of the way the breeds were developed, and how their behaviour and characters are linked to the jobs they have been designed to do. There is good advice on choosing and raising pups, and on training dogs for work, including falconry as well as shooting. English pointers are well covered, not just German Shorthaired Pointers. The three Setter breeds, English, Irish and Gordon, also get full coverage.

This book is highly recommended since it covers a lot of ground, and the author clearly knows his subject.
