Read what other prominent authors have to say about this book

“This book illustrates how you yourself can develop keen, reliable, accurate gun dogs by modern methods, using clicker training instead of correction. The authors are familiar with the demands of the sport, the nature of the dogs involved, and the ins and outs of applied behavioral science as well.”

Karen Pryor, Author, Don’t Shoot the Dog

“This book brims with crafty applications of learning laws. The discussions of transitioning to intrinsic reinforcers, generalizing, and proofing are among many first-rate treatments of topics in this goldmine of a book. Never preachy in tone, Positive Gun Dogs deals rationally with the motivator choices and presents a clear option for those who would rather not employ pain to train their field dogs.”

Jean Donaldson, Director, San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers. Author, Culture Clash
