By Mike Stewart, President Wildrose International
By definition, The Gentleman’s Gundog is a sporting dog capable of retrieving ducks by morning, hunt upland birds that afternoon, then join the family at fireside in the evening. A destination, versatile sporting dog, a dog of duality.
Wildrose joins the classic outdoor apparel company, Tom Beckbe, in producing a series of online features exploring the steps in training an upland gundog the Wildrose Way. The complementary series is available at uklabs.com and tombeckbe.com. Special thanks to William and Saint Hereford for the exceptional videography and production. The images capture the true emotion one can experience in the field.
Other training resources include our training book, Sporting Dogs and Retriever Training, the Wildrose Way; our DVD collection, Basic Retriever Training and Training the Upland Gundog which are both available in a downloadable format (wildrosetradingcompany.com). Our puppy early start series produced with Purina Pro Plan can be seen on our youtube channel, The Wildrose Way.
Enjoy your journey.
