Basic gundog training

This is a program for any flushing or retrieving dog (or versatile pointing breed dog that needs to retrieve.)  Our basic program will produce a dog that has the foundation hunting skills to be an asset in the duck blind or the upland fields and woods.  After your dog is done with this basic program your dog will be ready to be an everyday hunter and will be a better member of your family. 

The Program Includes

  • Basic obedience (sit, stay, here, and heel)
  • Live and dead bird work
    Gun work
  • Force Fetch in order to ensure delivery to hand of game
  • Collar Conditioning to teach the dog to properly respond to ecollar stimulation
  • Whistle commands (sit and here)
  • Working in and around various hunting equipment and situations
  • Tracking and trailing game
  • Basic steadiness (leaving for the retrieve by calling the dogs name)
  • Marked retrieves  

This is a 3 month program $600 per month plus birds.  Dogs must be a least 5 months old and be up to date on shots.
