About the Author

Joe Irving, winner of the prestigious McNeil Professional Handlers' Cup, was the author of a number of gundog training books including the classic titles 'Training Spaniels' and 'Gundogs; Their Learning Chain' (both published by Quiller Publishing). He was training gundogs since acquiring his first Springer Spaniel in 1963. A former child psychiatrist, he discovered that his psychiatric training gave a unique perspective to gundog training. He used this method to great success as a professional trainer.


Professional Gundog Training looks set to become a classic in its own right. A must for anyone eager to understand more about his or her pooch. * Shooting Times *
Written in a straightforward A-Z format this is a very handy reference book for anyone undertaking the challenging task of training a gundog. * Shooting Gazette *
