Dog Training

“There is nothing like an obedient dog in the field with a professional trainer under live gunfire with live birds to help make your hunting dog a true professional.”

From basic obedience (on the leash) training for your pup, to advanced field work for your veteran bird hunting dog, our professional field/bird dog training prepares your bird hunting dog for field success! We have been very successful in training dogs in force fetching which leads to giving dogs hand signals over greater distances.

Allow us to professionally train your bird hunting/gun dog. We take the time to train your bird hunting dog from basic obedience on leash to advanced field training off leash using live game birds under actual gunfire in the field. We will prepare your bird hunting dog for the field by introducing them to game bird scenting, game bird trailing, and hunting under gun fire. As your dog matures we train for steadiness and retrieving to hand from the water or field. More advanced off leash field handling of your bird hunting dog allows them to respond impressively and with reliability. We help you avoid making the mistakes that can ruin the opportunity for you to have a great bird hunting dog in the field.

We train all breeds and skill levels (puppy to adult) including setters, retrievers, griffon, German shorthair, wirehair pointers, flushers, Labradors, English, Springer and Brittany spaniels, setters, all waterfowl dogs, and all upland game ring neck pheasant and chukar field dogs for soft bird handling)

We train with a soft hand and within the limits of the dogs personality and abilities (electric shock collars are used if needed). Allow us to get your field dog ready for the bird hunting season.
