NEW GROUSE DOG TRAINING BOOK/MANUAL

Recommended Posts

Brad Eden

UJ has "sold" a slew of books over the years by mere mention on the Forums. Most of those authors and publishers have no affiliation nor do they support this Upland Discussion Community. (Others have contacted me and some have made barter or special arrangements.)

So...It's with great pleasure that I announce a new Grouse Dog Training book/manual by Ann Jandernoa, owner of Northwind Enterprises–A LONGTIME UJ AD SPONSOR AND SUPPORTER.

BUY DIRECTLY FROM NORTHWIND

Written by Ann Jandernoa, professional guide, breeder of grouse dogs, and owner of Northwind Enterprises, located in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, this manual is a unique, positive training method structured for the first year of training your pup to become a good grouse dog. With an unparalleled understanding of grouse habitat and the traits of a grouse, Ann’s insights shared in this training manual will help you to better understand how to train your young pup to hunt these difficult upland birds. This manual focuses on the first year of your pup’s development as it grows into becoming good, hopefully great, grouse dog.

The training that is outlined in this manual prepares your pup for working grouse and woodcock and to work within gun range for the foot hunter. Emphasis is placed on structuring your training into everyday routines so that as you interact with your pup on a daily basis you are incorporating positive training situations that will be utilized in the grouse woods.

 

Training Your Grouse Dog to be a Foot Hunting Companion Gun Dog contains photos and illustrations to help you better understand the detailed training methods that are outlined in this manual.  There are detailed skill development exercises from teaching your pup to settle, focusing its eye contact, incorporating whoa into its daily life, then graduating to quartering, hand signals, noise conditioning, and more. There are exercises on teaching your pup to work with minimal scent, learning to work unproductive points, relocating as needed, and locating the bird. Over the first year of your pup’s life every interaction you have with it has the potential to be a training lesson.

By starting at a young age you are building the foundation for a future grouse dog that knows how to work the cover, works within gun range, and has learned to point and work a grouse while putting minimal pressure on the bird.

This manual is designed for both the avid grouse hunter as well as someone who is just getting into grouse hunting.  The goal they both share is that they want to start with their own puppy and over time become grouse hunting partners that will share many seasons of enjoyable and productive hunts.

 

Ann M. Jandernoa, is a professional forester, cartographer, grouse  guide, grouse dog breeder and owner of Northwind Enterprise LLC since she founded it in 2001.

I'll probably buy it. It's always good to have different views on training. However, its interesting to see a setter on the cover. I though they raised/sold pointers not setters.

I am getting a copy soon...does this mean I may be getting a pointing dog...Hmmmmmmm. :<img src=:'>

What I like is it is a training manual-spiral bound etc. as opposed to a typical bound book. I spoke with Ann just yesterday over the phone and this sounds like a good training aid.

She and Northwind have also offered a copy of this book, one of their grouse DVD's and imagery map CD to this summers UJ Auction...of which I need to get organized.

I think skip has the setters. I don't know for certain but I think that might be a true statement.
