Basic Field Training
On average this program takes 8 weeks to complete

Please Note:
If your dog likes to play while retrieving, if your dog only retrieves when its in the mood, if your dog likes to chew on birds or refuses to retrieve birds, your dog will then need to go through the trained retrieve to fix those issues before starting this program. In order for a dog to excell in this program a dog must have a reliable retrieve and delivery to hand.

The following skills will be taught in this program ( Basic field skills needed for upland game and waterfowl hunting )
* Retrieving skills on land, in water and through decoys
* Retrieving skills to and from field blind/stand
* Steady to gunfire

* Develop a natural want to hunt and follow scent in medium to heavy cover
* A combination of live and dead pheasants will be used in this program, live and dead ducks will also be used when available.
Trained Retrieve
On average this program takes 8 weeks to complete

The trained retrieve is about having more control of your dog and your dog's retrieve, this training converts the playful natural retrieve to an obedient controlled retrieve with the proper delivery to hand.

Many people fail to understand why a dog that already retrieves naturally should be trained to retrieve. The truth is that the forced retrieve is more about control than it is about retrieving, a dog that completes a forced retrieve program is more reliable and obedient than dogs who control how and when birds are retrieved. A dog that is properly force trained will retrieve birds that you want retrieved, in the order you want them retrieved, return to heel and properly deliver to hand, the retrieve is completed on your terms not the dog's terms.

I honestly believe this training is the foundation to all gun dog training and all dogs should go through this training before starting the field work. This training is the most important and the most difficult training a dog and trainer will ever go through and is a must if you want a reliable retrieve and delivery to hand.


The following skills will be taught in this program:
* Your dog will be collar condition to the following commands ( come, heel, sit stay, fetch, hold, back and give )

* A combination of live and dead pheasants will be used in this program, live and dead ducks will also be used when available.
* The shotgun ( 12 gauge ) will be introduced in this program once your dog completely understands what it's job is.
