This is where we will develop your dog to its full potential using positive & negative reinforcement with the dog’s natural instincts to create successful situations in which each dog can thrive. These are a few of goals that each type of dog should achieve while in for gun dog development.
Flushers – Quartering within gun range in the field, collar conditioning to recall and sit (on cue and or flush), hunting dead, marking ability, and handling.
Pointers – Woah on cue, collar conditioning to recall, steadiness on point (wing, flush, shot, fall, or release), honoring another dog on point, marking ability, hunting dead, and handling.
Retrievers – Heel, collar conditioning to recall and sit on cue, place, handling in a blind, steadiness (at shot or release), honoring another dogs retrieve, trained retrieve, casting, and blind retrieves.
Together we will create a personalized training plan focused on the goals you wish to achieve with your dog. From basic obedience, gun and bird introductions all the way through steadiness, casting, and the trained retrieve, we would love to assist you in developing your hunting partner to its full potential!
