Gun Dog Training
Basic Gun Dog Training
The objectives for our Basic Gun Dog Training 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. Basic gun dog training is focused on getting your puppy or young dog off to the right start before negative traits are established. This training is generally available any time of the year, except October and November, and is a 3- to 4-month commitment. The cost is $3,600 to $4,800, plus all vet expenses. Training birds are included. At the end of the basic gun dog training, 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.
Forced-Fetch Gun Dog Training
The objective for our Forced-Fetch Gun Dog Training is to develop a reliable retrieve and a professional delivery for dogs with retrieving problems. This is very intense and structured “forced retrieve” training 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 all vet expenses.
Advanced Gun Dog Training
The objective of our Advanced Gun Dog Training is to build on the foundation previously established by our basic gun dog training, or the foundation put in place by the owner. Dogs learn formal obedience, proper hunting pattern, staying in control and simple blind retrieves. This training is what you need prior to opening day! The training is generally available any time during the year, except October and November, and is for 3 to 4 months. The cost is $3,600 to $4,800, plus all vet expenses. Training birds are included. At the end of advanced gun dog training, your dog will run a hunting pattern within range, be steady-to-wing and shot and complete simple blind retrieves.
Wild Bird Gun Dog Training
The objective of our Wild Bird Gun Dog Training 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 training 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 all vet expenses. This training is limited to dogs that have been in our program or are currently in our program.
