Empty Collars
Author

By Steve Smith

Description

These words of George Bird Evans capture what is at the heart of Empty Collars, a collection of writings about gun dogs, their owners, and the immutable bond between them. Losing a pet is never easy, and the connection between gun dog and owner seems to have an added intensity. Studies show that after losing a pet, owners need to go through the same stages of grief that they experience with any human loss. This anthology was created in an effort to provide empathy and comfort during this time.

Anyone who has spent time hunting ruffed grouse knows that this bird presents one of the most difficult challenges for any gun dog.

But it is to dogs capable of handling such challenges that Dick Weaver had devoted his life and career. Here, he not only offers invaluable training tips but shares his hunting experiences.
