Joe Irving has been training gundogs since acquiring his first Springer Spaniel in 1963. A former child psychiatrist, he discovered that his psychiatric training gave a unique perspective to gundog training. He has used this method to great success since becoming a professional trainer in 1972. He has written several books on gundog training including Training Spaniels (Swan Hill Press) and Gundogs; Their Learning Chain (Swan Hill Press)
