Setting Up For Success

Spaniel training manual

I’m very pleased to present my training manual, Setting Up For Success. This training manual started out back in 1984 as a one page guide for new puppy owners who purchased a puppy from our kennel Grousevalley Springers, where I wanted them to get their puppy started on the right track. One page grew to two then three etc. After writing a few articles for The Spaniel Journal I thought I was ready to write a complete training manual. I wanted to make a unique document that combine video and text where the reader could actually see how things can go wrong and how to make the proper corrections and avoid problems before they start to become bad habits.
