Daily ten-minute training sessions best suit a retriever’s attention span and lead to rapid learning. The text has the information most needed by the owner of a pet retriever: how to make it reliably obedient and well-mannered. It also has the information amateur trainers are clamoring for: how to force fetch, set up tests in the field, and how to use an electric collar humanely and effectively. Primary importance is placed on developing and enhancing the desire to retrieve. The Dahl’s method provides a solid foundation to the dog and owner continuing to advance retrieve training. Concepts and methods are illustrated with true dog stories.

    Great training book so far. Some of the descriptions of training methods aren't as precise and detailed as I would like and seems to be written for those who have had more experience training retrievers before. It gives a great overview though but as a layman, and for the layman, I prefer a training program that is more intuitive. I would recommend this as a backup book and reinforcement for the book "Training Retrievers for the Marshes and Meadows" by James B. Spencer. This is how I am using "The 10 Minute Retriever." It works as a great supplemental tool and has a few alternate methods that might be helpful if a dog were to be unresponsive to the plan presented in the former book mentioned. Good quality book over all though and I would definitely recommend this for any retriever trainer from the beginning trainer, as I am, to a more experienced trainer.

    I have a 6 month old black lab puppy that isn't going to be used as a gun dog, but we were hoping that he would be an eager retriever to play with. Maverick was interested in a tennis ball, but not crazy about it and if there were any distractions around, he would ignore it completely. Between getting a training bumper that he was much more enthusiastic about and utilizing this book, we now have a well-behaved, enthusiastic retriever. The book is full of helpful, practical tips and for the most part it's focused on positive reinforcement. A great resource!

    I coupled this with Water Dog by Richard Wolters. While 90% of what I did was from Water Dog, this had some nice tips and ideas to sprinkle in and add to some of the other methods. Some of the principles helped me from overdoing it with her. Highly recommended
