We offer dog training for hunting dogs as well as family pets.
We enjoy training dogs as much as hunting birds. The training offered focuses on training you, the handler, as well as the dogs. We believe in having the owner/handler actively participate in the training to develop a better understanding of their dog, its drives, pack behavior, and it's desire to please you.
All training offered is one-on-one unless we specifically advertise a group session. We prefer to conduct an evaluation of your dog for all gun-dog training and develop a training plan for you and your dog based on its current level of training and abilities. All dogs (and handlers) learn at different paces, so we focus on training sessions as often as you desire and "homework" assigned to conduct before the next session to evaluate and advance to the next step.
We utilize specific training fundamentals for gun dogs, but we design a training plan based around what you want out of your dog. Obedience training can be tailored to your desires. We can use treat based reward training, clicker training, slip or pinch collar corrections and/or E-collar, depending on the owner/handlers preference.
Due to hunt guiding, our primary training season is February to September. We can train during the hunt season, but must be scheduled around booked hunts.
