Browsing titles on Hong Kong and came across this gloriously pulpy trash.

Based on the sample, I'm tempted to buy!

No idea about content, but this is also a grabber (read back cover for explanation of cover art!)

I trust this is a technical term
Just training or "breaking them in" I suspect, though the word seems to have gone out of fashion.

The scene on the title-page is quite sweet, as the hunter seems about to share his lunch with one of the dogs*.

They appear to be celebrating a good "bag" but what on earth are they? Hopefully not badgers! :sherlock:

*On second thoughts, he may be demonstrating his skill at making the dog sit, instead of devouring its prey.

Did the publisher suggest the author could broaden the book's appeal by allowing for readers who aspire to have only a mediocre effect on their four-legged trainees.
