The Cocker Spaniel by Janet Menzies

10 copies to be won

The cocker spaniel is one of the most popular breeds of dogs in the UK today. Bred for stamina, intelligence and drive, they make lively, loving pets. If trained properly they are extremely adaptable gundogs. Some first-time owners can find them a challenging breed, but get the training right and there is no better companion.

Janet Menzies has had years of experience breeding and trainer cockers with five Field Trial Champions to her name. In this book she takes the first-time owner from getting the pup home, initial training through to it becoming a star performer in the field. Not only that, the author guides the reader through other training applications such as agility tests, working gundog tests, heel work to music and other activities.
