“Too many modern dog handlers take the view that dog training is a testing of a dog’s will against an electric collar, forgetting that the road to a finished bird dog is a scenic path traveled but once. The difference between a thoughtful approach to teaching and the work of an impatient trainer is the difference between taking the time to smell the roses and simply mowing them.”
