Gun Dog Training Camps
Basic Gun Dog Camp
The objectives for our Basic Gun Dog Camp are to set a strong foundation for your dog, which includes proper introduction and exposure to birds, proper gun introduction, basic obedience, hunting in control and basic retrieving. This camp is focused on getting your puppy or young dog off to the right start before negative traits are established. This camp is generally available any time of the year, except October and November, and generally is for three months. The cost is $3,600 to $4,800, plus vet expenses. Training birds are included. At the end of the camp, your dog will come when called or whistled, hup/sit when told by voice or whistle, be e-collar conditioned if you choose, hunt for birds within range and generally retrieve.
Trained Retrieve Gun Dog Camp
The objective for our Trained Retrieve Gun Dog Camp is to develop a reliable retrieve and a professional delivery for dogs with retrieving problems. This is a very intense and structured “forced retrieve” camp for your dog. We will cure your dog’s retrieving problems and create a reliable retriever that brings the bird back to you without fumbling, dilly-dallying or avoiding bringing the bird back to you. This camp is generally available any time during the year, except October, and is for 6 to 8 weeks. The cost is a flat $2,500, plus vet expenses.
Advanced Gun Dog Camp
The objective of our Advanced Gun Dog Camp is to build on the foundation previously established at one of our gun dog camps, or the foundation put in place by the owner. Dogs learn formal obedience, proper hunting pattern, staying in control and simple blind retrieves. This camp is what you need prior to opening day! This camp is generally available any time during the year, except October and November, and generally is for three months. The cost is $3,600 to $4,800, plus vet expenses. Training birds are included. At the end of the camp, your dog will run a hunting pattern within range, be steady-to-wing and shot and complete simple blind retrieves.
Wild Bird Hunting Camp
The objective of our Wild Bird Hunting Camp is to build a positive hunting foundation in your dog. The benefits to your dog are significant regarding exposure to cover, travel and of course birds. Our camp varies by year and location but is generally for 4-6 weeks in October and November. Your dog will travel with us and we will hunt it each day to gain experience that will last for its life. The cost is $2,500, plus vet expenses. This camp is limited to dogs that have been in our program or are currently in our program.
