    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.
    WATER DOG is:

    The first book written for the person with limited time who wants to train a working retriever fast and who wants to train it himself.

    The first book written in the retriever field with new scientific information on the mental development of the dog. It's a step by step training book with no extraneous material. It covers everything from the day you get your puppy to the finished dog.

    The first book written about the retriever with new commands and using the Dummy-Launch, a new training device co-developed by the author, making training easier for you and your dog.

    The first book to show the complete training procedures step by step in picture sequence. It covers every facet of the training. It will show you not only what to expect of your dog but what your dog can expect of you. You will be able tosee how to do it. It's written with humor - fun for you and your dog.

    WATER DOG is A REVOLUTIONARY RAPID TRAINING METHOD.

      I bought this as a gift for a friend with a new Chesapeake. I used this with my Golden twenty years ago. This book will probably live on forever.

      I have already read the book and wanted to share it with my father-in-law for his new puppy. It is a good book. The service from overstock was excellent also.
