Gun Dog Training Sessions
Our gun dog training classes are designed to teach you how to train your hunting dog to become a more reliable gun dog. They are available on an appointment basis throughout the year, weather permitting. The gun dog training classes are set up similar to actual field training scenarios and are designed for you and your gun dog’s particular needs. They are a good alternative to on-site gun dog training for people who want to learn more about training their gun dog and be more involved in the gun dog training program. The gun dog training classes consist of individual instruction for you and your dog, although small group classes are available by request.
Our gun dog training sessions are for those individuals wanting to learn first hand how to train a skilled hunting dog. The gun dog training sessions will be available year round in Northern Utah, weather permitting. We conduct these gun dog training sessions in actual hunting environments for both upland game and waterfowl hunting. Our gun dog training for retrievers is largely based around the AKC hunt test program criteria and we strongly urge dog owners to get involved in the AKC hunt test program. We strongly stress owner participation and education in our gun dog training programs and have found over the years that a better trained gun dog will result with a better trained handler.
The bird dog training sessions are available on an individual or small training group basis. We provide the basic gun dog equipment such as bumpers, leashes, launchers, etc… The gun dog training sessions for retriever owners are especially great for young dogs and new handlers and for owners needing some help with longer or multiple marks. The gun dog training sessions can cover a variety of aspects, including basic obedience, basic marking skills, basic handling and blinds, upland game training, advanced marking and blinds, and other areas needed for a skilled hunting dog. The bird dog training sessions for pointing dogs can cover topics such as e-collar training, whoa training, steady to wing and shot, force fetching, as well as the dog being worked on live fly-away pigeons in bird launcher, at no extra charge.
