Mike Stewart signs SPORTING DOG & RETRIEVER TRAINING THE WILDROSE WAY

Tuesday, September 18, 2012 - 5:00pm

A comprehensive guide to transforming your dog into a valuable wing-shooting companion in the field and at home. Created by Mike Stewart of Wildrose Kennels, the Wildrose Way is a unique, low-force, positive training method that is field-proven for upland and waterfowl gundogs. The training prepares dogs for versatility—any game, any terrain, any destination—and makes them desirable companions for any situation. Now, for the first time, Stewart’s methods are compiled in one indispensable reference book, fully illustrated with photographs and diagrams. Containing chapters on establishing essential behaviors, the core skills of the hunting retriever, and waterdog finishing work, as well as sidebars on such topics as breed selection and effective canine leadership, this step-by-step book is designed specifically for wing-shooters who want to transform their pup into a gentleman’s gundog.

Mike Stewart is president of Wildrose Kennels and has more than thirty years of experience training a variety of sporting dogs. His unique, positive training method is recognized and celebrated by sportsmen across the country. Paul Fersen has been with The Orvis Company for almost two decades and is now a senior writer. He has been published in Gray’s Sporting Journal and American Angler and has written several books. John Newman is president of Ducks Unlimited, the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving waterfowl habitats.
