Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 158574431X, Hardcover)

Based on the best-selling video series of the same name, Top Dog makes the dream of owning a finished retriever a reality for the amateur trainer. All the basics of obedience and retrieving are covered, using proven methods refined over the years by master trainers like Richard A. Wolters and Tony Hartnett. But what makes this book unique is its emphasis on the humane use of the electronic collar to reinforce those basics as well as advanced drills. The result is a dog that takes a precise line to the most difficult blind retrieves. A dog that honors casts in any direction, avoids "poison" birds, and moves with style and determination. With Top Dog, all you need is time, patience, and consistency, and you're sure to be rewarded with a top dog of your very own. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 192 pages, b&w photos, diagrams)
