80% OF RETRIEVING IS OBEDIENCE, THE OTHER 80% IS INSTINCT, AND THE OTHER 80% IS PASSION.

TRAINING PROGRAMS

PUPPY  BEGINNINGS

THIS PROGRAM IS TAILORED FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS, AND WILL LAY THE BASELINE FOR YOUR PUPPIES CONTINUED LEARNING THROUGHOUT ITS LIFE. IT IS A MONTH LONG PROGRAM WHERE YOUR PUPPY WILL LEARN BASIC COMMANDS.  BASIC COMMANDS SUCH AS SIT, WAIT, HERE, HEEL, WALKING ON AND OFF LEASH WILL ARE TAUGHT TO OUR PUPPY IN A FUN PLAYFUL METHOD. WHEN THE OWNER COMES TO PICK THE DOG UP, THEY WILL BE SHOWN WHAT THEIR DOG CAN DO, AND WILL BE TAUGHT TO REINFORCE AND CONTINUE ANY DESIRED TRAINING. 

BASIC GUNDOG TRAINING

A.K.A. MEAT DOG.

OBEDIENCE IS THE BUILDING BLOCK TO EVERY GUN DOG, THIS IS THE NEXT STEP. DOGS ARE TRAINED TO THE  STANDARD OF AKC JUNIOR LEVEL AND UKC STARTED LEVEL. THEY SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF PICKING UP SINGLE MARKS, AND OWNERS MAY OPTION FOR THEM TO BE FORCE FETCHED. WE WILL TRY TO DEVELOP THE DOGS PREY DRIVE AND DESIRE TO GAME. THESE DOGS ARE GOOD FOR THE LONE HUNTER IN THE DOVE FIELD OR DUCK BLIND. 

GUNDOG TRAINING

AT THIS LEVEL, YOUR DOG WILL BE ABLE TO PICK UP DOUBLE RETRIEVES, RUN BASIC BLINDS, AND WORK WELL WITH OTHER DOGS WHILE THEY ARE WORKING AS WELL. IF SO DESIRED, THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO RUN AKC SENIOR TESTS, AND UKC SEASONED TEST.

ANY GUNDOG OF THIS CALIBER WILL WORK WELL FOR GUIDES OR HUNTERS THAT HAVE SEVERAL OTHER FRIENDS AND OTHER DOGS WITH THEM IN THE FIELD. 

MASTER/FINISHED TRAINING

HARD CORE. THESE DOGS DO IT ALL. THEY ARE TRAINED TO THE AKC MASTER LEVER, OR THE UKC FINISHED LEVEL. THEY ARE EXPECTED TO EFFICIENTLY PICK UP MULTIPLE MARKED RETRIEVES, RUN BLINDS TO THE HORIZON, AND WORK WELL IN ANY SITUATION. 

OFTEN THESE DOGS ARE HUNT TESTED AND PROVEN TO INCREASE A DOGS LINEAGE VALUE, OR JUST TO CONTINUE IN ITS HUNT TEST CAREER. IT IS A COMMITMENT TO PRECISION AND QUALITY THAT IS SURPASSED BY NONE.
