OBEDIENCE TRAINING

Starting at approx 3 months on up, We train the pup to obedience commands of sit, here and heel on and off lead. We take only retriever/pointing breeds in for this. Time frame for this training is usually no more than 30 days. We no longer train mixed breed dogs

HANDLING TRAINING

teaching a dog to do blind retrieves. 

We can begin as soon as the dog is fetching from the ground on command, concurrent with marking development. Dogs learn to take a line and go in that direction until stopped with a whistle, and to take casts in all directions in a variety of circumstances and wind directions. 

TUNE-UP

This training is designed to get the dog back into top form for either hunting season or hunt tests. This training is for 14 days (two weeks) at a cost of $500.00 and this includes birds.

Note: If your dog needs more, then the fee will revert to the full monthly fee. 

PUPPY TRAINING

starting at about 3 month up to six months (Earlier with coordination)

We socialize your puppy, develop retrieving drive, and familiarize them with aspects of retrieving to include land and water marks, decoys, birds, gunfire, etc. We introduce basic obedience commands with emphasis on developing a willing, confident attitude toward training.  This is a training phase that the owners can accomplish with a little guidance.

UPLAND TRAINING

we specialize in training Pointing Labradors (PL), We are able to train the other breeds as well.  Upland training will include;  steady to wing and shot, steady to wing, shot and fall, whoa, and quartering,
