  1. #1

    books on deer dogs

    anybody got any good tips on books for training, I have the guy wallace booklet
    its a bit brief and I always prefer to have too much information

    Mentioned it on another post but I would recommend

    Working with Dogs for Deer by Nials Sondergaard

    It is pricey at 30 but you only need to buy it once.

    I got mine through the BDS website shop.

    All the best

    Try these, although others I am sure can advise better:

    Tracking Dogs for Finding Wounded Deer - John Jeanneney - ISBN 0-9725089-0-2: This is THE textbook on dogs for deer (and bears!)

    Tracking Wounded Deer - Richard P. Smith - ISBN 0-9617407-7-9: More about tracking wounded deer in general, than specifically tracking them with dogs. Good discussion around recognising the different types of blood/trails

    Finding Wounded Deer - John Trout Jr - ISBN 1-58011-190-4: Again, more about recognising the different wounds than tracking with dogs.

    The Specialist Gundog - Guy Wallace - ISBN 0-948253-82-7: I don't know if this is the book you mean, but it has a good chapter on dogs for deer stalking. Like him or hate him, Guy Wallace's opinions on dogs (and their owners) makes for a very interesting read

    Now if only I can train my cocker spaniel to read these blasted books.....

    try a dvd instead, preferably played on a 52 inch ,atleast the dog can see what it is meant to be doing

    as Ben p has already said
    Niels Sondergaard ' Working with dogs for deer '

    and one of willie-gunn's choices
    Tracking Dogs for Finding Wounded Deer - John Jeanneney - ISBN 0-9725089-0-2: This is THE textbook on dogs for deer (and bears!)

    both excellent and informative reads with lots of helpfull training guides, that cover everything from puppyhood up to a trained dog
    you won't go wrong with either or both
    there are others out there the chioce is yours

    You could try the BDS, as they show it on their website:

    http://www.bds.org.uk/iqs/sfa.list/rp.1/books.html

    I got mine direct from the author. You can do this at:

    I've tried the DVD, but the poor cocker has a problem getting the case open! Then she demands that I go and get her a Kia-Ora and some Butterkist popcorn

    Guy Wallace also wrote another book The Versatile Gundog.
    I got my local library to order it in and borrowed it on several occasions. I know that Guy is not to everybody's taste, but I enjoyed the book and found it very useful. Have a look on Amazon it isn't very expensive.
