Dan got my first dog when she was 3 she could'nt even swim yet alone hunt, bought the book waterdog and started training her like she was a puppy, within a few months she was hunting and making simple retrieves
by the next season she was doing basic blind retrieves, after that she would do about anything i asked her to do, just follow the book step by step and don't skip around or you'll miss something. If you need anymore help just holler and i'll do what i can.

Yes Waterdog is an excellent book as is training your retriever by James Lamb Free.Try a pro trainer or if you want to train the dog yourself some trainers will alow you to train with them on their facilities and even offer advice, but it will still cost you but it is well worth it. Good luck
happy hunting T R D
