RETRIEVERS AND RETRIEVING With Notes on Field Trials By Major W.G. Eley A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in London 1905, and then revised and updated in 1913, this rare early work was one of the first books to deal with retrievers, their training, and use in Field Trials. It is both expensive and hard to find in any early edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have now republished it using the original text, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was a well known and respected breeder and trainer of retrieving breeds and also an experienced game shot. He contributed many articles on both subjects to the sporting press of that era. Major Eley states that for all practical purposes Retrievers can be summed up as one breed. Flat Coated Retrievers and Labradors were the favourite breeds of his day, and numerically the strongest, but his advice also covers any retrieving breed of dog. "Retrievers and Retrieving" consists of one hundred and fifty five pages divided into five comprehensive chapters: - Early Training. - Work in the Field. - Observations. - Retriever Trials. - Kennel Management.
This is a fascinating read for any gundog enthusiast or historian of those breeds, but also contains much information that is still practical and useful today. Many of the earliest dog books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
