Forthcoming Books

Most gundog training books are aimed at those who hope to compete with their dogs in Gundog Working Tests and, perhaps, Field Trials.

The Gun's Dog, by contrast, has been written solely and specifically for the gun who wants no more than a steady and agreeable shooting companion.

Drawing on forty years picking-up experience of what guns want from their dogs Graham Cox sets out the bare essentials for educating a dog that you can be proud to take anywhere.

Due for publication during 2014; please contact us for further information.
