You can't completely train a dog in 8 weeks of classes, but we can give the owner/handler a good foundation of what they need to know to end up with a respectable hunting retriever that can be used for waterfowl or upland game hunting.

Four indoor classes and lots of home practice spread over 4 weeks. Outdoor training lasts another 4 weeks, again with lots of home practice.

Dogs need to be at least 5 months old!

Rabies vaccination, proof of shots and negative stool check are required before dogs can enter building. No dogs are allowed in class with flea and tick infestations. Dogs may be examined and excused by the Trainer.
