This is a fascinating read for any guard dog enthusiast or historian of the breed, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Ten photographic illustrations accompany an absorbing and informative text. Contents Include: The Obedient Dog; The First Step; Elementary Lessons; Further Progress; The Intermediate Stages; Advanced Work; Tracking; How Dog Training Has Developed; Rules for Working Trials; and Obedience Tests and Trials. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
