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.)

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.

From Janauray to November we have a set schedule for training dogs that are enrolled for the puppy program. The puppy program is limited to only 12 slots. Due to popularity of this program, please contact us to register your puppy. Below are the available dates for the puppy training program.

TUNE UP

The next step for dogs that have been through the puppy program.

Your dog’s skills are tightened up and training is reinforced away from the training field in real hunting scenarios, including hunting alongside other dogs. Contact us to sign up.

OPTIONAL GUIDED HUNT
You are taken on your first hunt to initiate you and your dog’s success in the field. If you’ve never hunted behind a dog, you will have help learning to read your dog’s mannerisms around birds and you will learn to trust the instincts that have been cultivated and honed in the Puppy Program and Tune-Up Program.
