    Can anyone recommend me one at all..? Hoping I could get a copy off Amazon as I've got a long list of things to get from there anyway, but doesn't matter if not! I have no idea which authors are any good or what I should look for, so any recommendations greatly appreciated! I'm after something which just covers the basics really but anything else is a bonus too :)

    John Weller's 'A Simple Approach to Gundog Training' - covers all the basics, very well written in a way that even I can understand :) plus the proceeds go to charity!

    Hi, I've just read the pet gun dog, its new and by a lady called Lez Graham, you can get it off her website LezGrahamBooks

    Some really good techniques and a common sense approach for training your dog, its working wonders on my 2 labs

    Cheers

    Rich

    Susan Scales Basic Retriever Training. This book has been the one that I have based my training on for the last 20ish years.
