    Hey Pup, Fetch It Up Back Cover Detail


    1993 Edition, 500 pages, hard cover, black and white photos and illustrations

    If your Pup could walk into a book-store and buy one training manual as a gift for both himself and you, the person he's taken for life, this is the book he'd choose. Why? Because if Pup could write a book - from a dog's point of view - to teach anyone how to train any breed of gun dog to fetch any bird his master wanted in hand, these are the things he would say. And when Pup got old, after a lifetime of experience in the field, and reviewed the book he would have written, he'd conclude, "I wouldn't change a word."

    This highly readable book is packed with helpful information:
  • Details on the revolutionary force-retrieve method
  • Advice on teaching a dog to mark and fetch
  • How to introduce a dog to water
  • Techniques for correcting faults in old dogs
  • Tips on keeping your dog in top physical shape

    Tarrant's great love for dogs and his commitment to training " with your head, not your hand" is evident throughout these pages. "Dog training must be based on mutual trust and respect," he says. "It can work no other way."

    Whether your training for hunting or field trials, you and Pup will both benefit from Tarrant's wisdom and experience. Simply put, HEY PUP, is Bill Tarrant at his best.

    Bill Tarrant has won practically every award given by the Dog Writers Association of America, some more than once, and has been described by Hunting Retriever magazine as "one of the premier dog writers in America." His column on gun dogs appears regularly in Field & Stream, and he has written five other books on the subject.
