The gundog program is designed to develop the basic commands of a hunting retriever!
In this program we expand the basic obedience program into the field and teach your dog to be a hunting companion that behaves in the blind and retrieves birds that are then delivered to hand!
This program generally takes 4 months of training, obtaining an obedient hunting retriever!
In this program we teach dogs to be steady to shot, sent to retrieve on their name, obediently deliver the birds to the heel position, and release the bird into your hand!
In the first 4-6 weeks of training your dog is completing the basic obedience program.
At the 4th-8th week portion in training your dog is learning to formally fetch, hold, and drop all retrieving objects (birds, bumpers, ATB's, etc.)
At the 8th-12th week portion in training we are transitioning the formality of learning to be obedient, and retrieving into the field!
At the 12th-16th week portion in training we will be expanding everything we've learned into simulated hunting scenarios! Retrieving live birds on land and water, and learning the beginning stages of quartering and flushing upland game!
We will introduce your dog to every simulated hunting scenario possible, from a day in the dove field to hundreds of waterfowl decoys on land and water!
Completion of this program makes them eligible for AKC Junior/UKC Started Hunt Tests!
