Training

If your goal is to participate in all levels of AKC and UKC Hunt Tests or Field Trials, this program will lay the foundation for a confident, competitive retriever. We will also invest time into you, the handler, to approach the line with the confidence and know-how it takes to get through the test. Areas we cover include but are not limited to:

  • Basic Obedience, Collar Conditioning, Force Fetch and Delivery to Hand
  • Steady to Shot
  • Walk up's (Simulated Jump-Shooting)
  • Honoring (Sharing Tasks with other Dogs)
  • Blinds (Handling a Dog to a Bird they didn't see Fall) 
  • Diversions
  • Live Flyer Marks
