    Deer Dog Training Book or Manual

    Can anyone recommend a book or manual about deer dog training?

    Hints & tips would also be welcome, particularly in respect of Springer Spaniels.

    Niels Sondergaards book, Working With Dogs for Deer is an excellent read. However, he is quite blunt and to the point when it comes to choosing a breed and the characteristics necessary to become proficient at working with deer. One point being starting with a breed that's likely to offer a big part of that hoped for success. It depends I suppose on what level of proficiency you want to achieve.

    Regardless, good luck with the dog and the training...

    The dog that I want to train is unusually clever and obedient for a spaniel, the most important thing that I am looking for is for him to be able to follow a wound trail. I nearly lost a deer a few weeks ago that was under a Rhododendron bush that was a few feet from where I was stood. Fortunately there was a trained dog to hand which found it very quickly.

    +1 on Niels Sondergaards' book; also the book 'Dead On!' by John Jeanneney is very informative (I haven't read the hardback book 'Tracking Dogs for Finding Wounded Deer' but have it on my Christmas list).

    Ask Kit who runs Muntjac Trading...

    As mentioned, the Dogs for Deer by Neils Sondergaard & Tracking Dogs for Finding Wounded Deer by John Jeanneney were the two main reference books recommended to me and which I, as a relative novice, can thoroughly recommend. Also the little paper pamphlet "Training Dogs for Woodland Deer Stalking by Guy Wallace" comes in about 7 from the BDS site & can be handy too, between the three above, you can pick all sorts of advice and training tips.
