  • Great podcast with my buddy George! Anyone looking to learn how to train their own dog should get a copy of his book. I’ve been hunting and training with him for many years and still got two copies.

  • Undoubtedly, the best book I have ever read regarding training bird dogs. So many writers seem to think there is one way, and only one way… (Usually their way) to instill obedience in our pups and they rarely seem to write about developing that special bond and family relationship with your pup. DECOSTA is quite a writer. I’ve read most of his articles and this guy is spot on!!!
