    RICHARD A. WOLTERS was a leader in applying the scientific discoveries of animal behaviorists to dog training. His books on training -Game Dog, Water Dog, Gun Dog, Family Dog, and Home Dog - are recognized as classics in their fields. His historical book,The Labrador Retriever: The History...The People, was chosen as Best Dog Book of the Year by the Dog Writers Association of America. In 1984 the DWAA honored Mr. Wolters as both Writer of the Year forGame Dog and Columnist of the Year for his popular column "Gun Dog" in Gun Dog magazine. Well-known for his lectures and seminars on retriever training, Mr. Wolters also was a president of the Westchester, New York, Retriever Club, as well as a vice president and director of the North American Hunting Retriever Association, which he was influential in founding.

    A veritable Renaissance man, Mr. Wolters worked as an atomic scientist, fine-arts teacher, photographer, and as picture editor atSports Illustrated. His sporting interests included hunting, angling, bobsledding, ballooning, and soaring in sailplanes, in which he held the highest rating.
    For over thirty years, Richard A. Wolters' unrivaled expertise at training dogs has saved millions of owners many months of wasted time and labor. Now this updated edition ofGame Dog offers the most efficient system to train retrievers for hunting upland birds and waterfowl. With this concise new method, you can have a skilled hunting retriever by the time your dog is one year old.

    Based on scientific discoveries in dog psychology and synchronized with your dog's natural development, Wolters' method follows a clear, week-by-week timetable. His step-by-step instructions, illustrated with sequence photographs of dogs in training, tell you:

    --How to choose a pup - what to look for, where to find the best
    --The five critical periods of a dog's mental development
    --Which retrievers are easier to train -- males or females
    --How to get two dogs to work together
    --Why feeding time is more than food
    --How to teach your dog to track, quarter, and swim after game
    --How to get your dog to betray his instincts and obey your commands
    --Which tasks your dog must master to qualify as a hunter

    This revised Second Edition of Game Dog is complete with the latest advances in training equipment, a full discussion of the new Hunting Retriever Stakes, and an appendix containing the complete official rules for competition in these popular events. It is an invaluable book for every hunter training a retriever and one that anyone who loves dogs will find great fun to read.
