Chesapeake Bay Retriever Library


  • Training Your Retriever, by James Lamb Free.  This book is a classic and has sections on Chesapeakes, Labradors, and Goldens.
  • The Working Retrievers, by Tom Quinn, et. al.  This is my all-time favorite and covers every aspect of training dogs for hunting and field trials from the beginning to the most advanced levels.
  • Training Retrievers To Handle, by D.L. and Ann Walters.  This book is an excellent source of information for the more advanced training in handling required by retrievers to compete successfully in field trials and hunt tests.
  • The Retriever Game, by Boyd Gibbons.  This is a fun book to read for those interested in the life of field trialers and their dogs competing in the national field trial circuit.  It profiles some of the well-known professional field trial trainers.
