Training All Breeds of Sporting Dogs!!

The Training Program

35+ years of bird hunting and dog training experience utilized in our training methods.
Each dog's training program is
individually designed
for him.
We do not use heavy-handed methods to train. Nor do we use e-collars for training purposes though we do use e-collars for safety purposes. We utilize our gun dog method of consistency, patience and repetition which produces dogs with a passion to find birds.

Birds make bird dogs, so we use live birds extensively in our training programs!

The various program levels are guidelines -
each dog's needs are different and maturity levels vary, which is the reason we believe in the need for adapting the program to the individual dog.

Please feel free to call and we'll discuss your dog's needs and  his individual program.

How Long Does it Take?

Generally, 4 to 8 weeks will handle most training programs, depending on the program level and the training required. Your dog will be worked every day of it's stay at our school, and we won't stretch out the training process over months and months just to pad the training time. Very rarely does it take more

than 2 months for a gun dog to achieve the desired goals.
