    • The Brittany: Amateurs Training with Professionals



      The Brittany: Amateurs Training with Professionals will enable amateur pointing dog trainers to train hunting dogs that they will be proud of and field trial dogs that will win. While emphasis is on the Brittany, this book will help people who train pointing dogs become better trainers. The information in this book emphasizes a step-by-step training process and focuses on the logical progression of the steps. Field trialers and trainers Martha H. Greenlee and David A. Webb (author of A Feisty Little Pointing Dog) have combined their decades of experience with the expertise of the country's top Brittany pros to create an immensely useful guide for anyone who is interested in working with Brittanys.
