Upland Retriever Training

We love training and working with dogs and owners and we believe this is why our training programs are so successful.

Our programs are designed to keep the intensity in your dog and develop them in a way that they want to work FOR YOU. To accomplish this, we follow up training by continuing to work with you and your dog after you bring them home. We teach you how to handle your dog and how to continue the training process. Because of this, our programs have produced many outstanding dogs.

PUPPY TRAINING

(Dogs enrolled in the Puppy Program should be at least 5 months of age.)

TRAINING IS DONE ON LIVE BIRDS. BIRDS ARE BILLED AT THE END OF TRAINING

Our Puppy Program is designed to give your puppy the right start. This program is designed to get dogs and owners used to working with each other in the field. This is a low-stress training program. It’s a fun time for puppies and their owners.

Yard Work – Sit, Come, Heel, Fetch, and Kennel.
Patterning – Your dog will learn basic handling and quartering skills.
Birds – Your dog will have the correct introduction to birds, starting with pigeons, and then moving on to chuckar.
Gunfire – Your dog will be introduced to guns the proper and safe way.
Flushing – Your dog will learn the proper way to quarter and flush birds. Dogs will also learn not to chase missed birds.
Collar Introduction – dogs are introduced to an electronic collar using low stimulation and praise.
Obedience – dogs learn that jumping, barking, chasing, and other bad habits are not acceptable behaviors. For more obedience work dogs can stay for more advanced obedience training.
