Hunting Dog Training

A Good Dog Makes All The Difference

Basic training for your hunting dog is key toward long term success.  This training includes:

  • Listening & executing simple commands:

  • Come

  • Heel (walk beside you)

  • Hup (sit)

  • Quarter and work a field

  • Flush a bird

  • Chase the fall (find the bird after it is shot down)

  • Retrieve to handler on land and/or water

Basic training will cover all different types of hunts; from upland bird hunting to waterfowl hunting.  This training will also allow you and your dog to compete in a AKC Hunt Test at a junior or senior level.


Field Trial Competition Team

Take your dog to the next level

Competition training!  Your dog already has all the basic training skills, now comes the competition skills, which will qualify your dog to compete in a AKC Field Trial.

  • Be steady to wing and shot

  • Run and honor in a brace

  • Find blind retrieves

  • Stay steady at the water’s edge

  • Perform other advance handling

This all means that your dog will be able to quarter through the field between two gunmen, find and flush birds, hup immediately after the shotgun fires at your command, wait for your command to go fetch the bird, and then bring the bird back to your hand.
