about

Our intermediate program is designed to achieve on-and-off leash training. The introduction of whistle recall will lay the foundation for future training and allow for a level of control. Your canine will go through both land and water retrieves; learning to retrieve completely to hand. Fieldwork is established with quartering skills. Your canine will know he is hunting with you and not for himself. This program is designed to give you control both at home and in the field. We provide exposure to both dead birds, live birds and gun fire. E-collars are introduced in this course. Your canine will learn how to work on marking down downed game and trailing birds.

About

Our 8-week shed program is designed to train your canine to recognize the scent of antlers and increase his/her drive to seek sheds.
