Retriever Training | Basic Training
Basic Retriever (3-4 months) $500 per month
The Basic Retriever program takes a young inexperienced dog and exposes them to situations that depict what they will come across during hunting season. Dogs in this program are taught basic obedience, forced retrieve (force fetch-holding a bird on command until told to release), steadiness, and lots of socialization.
Dogs that complete this program will be ready to go to field hunting. They will be obedient off lead, steady to wing and shot and proficient in marking long singles and simple doubles. They are exposed to different types of training ground as well as gunfire, boats, vehicles, decoys, stationary platforms (duck blinds, dog blinds, tree stands), and live and dead birds.
