1964 WATER DOG,  Revolutionary Rapid Training method, with dust jacket,  by Richard Wolters, featuring lots and lots of photos of Tar the black Labrador Retriever, 179 pp, 6 3/4" x 9", you can learn quite a bit about training and spending time with a dog pretty fast with this book even if you are not looking to train your dog as a retriever, fair to poor condition, looks like the last dog trained with this book did not appreciate it much and gnawed the spine and part of both covers away, also got some pages, but all information is there and surprisingly the binding is still solid, this book is not going to fall apart on you, personally I get a kick out of the teeth marks     #SP27174    $5.50
