Our Gun Dog program lasts approximately 4 months. If having a confident hunting companion is your goal, Macomo Kennels will accomplish the following with your retriever:
- Basic Obedience, Collar Conditioning, Force Fetch, and Delivery to Hand
- Steady to Shot
- Live Flyer Marks (x3 month)
Price: $645 per month. Includes boarding, training, feeding, K9 Thrive probiotics, and birds (dispatched and flyers).
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)
- Live Flyer Marks
