Field training is great for cooperation and teamwork between dog and owner, and it enables a working dog to do what it's bred to do. Field training can be done by using dummies and duck-scent so you don't have to use live (or once-live) animals, and it's wonderful to see dogs doing what they're supposed to do. It provides a dog with ever-important physical and mental enrichment.
