Red face Tips on training for hunting?

Hey all!

My boyfriend and I have decided to start working with our dogs for hunting. Our golden retriever already knows some of the basics - she will flush a bird (sort of) and, of course, retrieve it after it's been shot and deliver to hand.

Our puppy on the other hand... He has had no training in the field at all. He has basic obedience down, but that's it. Frankly, I have no idea where to start.

Does anybody have any good "getting started" tips or know of any good books for training a dog to hunt birds?

Thanks in advance!

I haven't personally read this book but have heard good things about it.

My friend has that book and has found it very helpful. I've not read it myself.
