The Gun's Dog
Pernice Press’s second book, The Gun’s Dog, was published on October 31st, 2014.
In the style of early gundog books but with a modern twist, The Gun’s Dog outlines the bare essentials for educating a well-bred, keen and mannerly dog. Rather than a step by step ‘how to’ manual, it is a workbook that enables you to develop a personal strategy and resolve difficulties for yourself.
Most gundog training books are intended for those who hope to compete with their dogs in Gundog Working Tests and, perhaps, Field Trials. This book will certainly help further such ambitions, but its principal focus is the gun who wants to shoot over a steady and agreeable shooting companion.
In a marked difference to Pernice Press’s first title, The Best of the Best - a 416 page coffee table and reference book - The Gun’s Dog is a small softback that you can tuck into your back pocket or field jacket while out training the dogs. It is an affordable and practical gift that’s also beautiful.
Forty years of picking up and competitive experience have given Graham Cox a keen appreciation of what guns and handlers want from their dogs. With sporting traditions in mind, he presents a clear philosophy and outlines the craft skills you will need to educate a dog that you can be proud to take anywhere.
