Retriever and Pointing Labrador Training

Puppy Training
Starting about 3 months up to six months we socialize your puppy, develop retrieving drive, and familiarize them with aspects of retrieving to include land and water marks, decoys, birds, gunfire, etc. We introduce basic obedience commands with emphasis on developing a willing, confident attitude toward training.

Gundog Training
Starting any time after six months.  Include marking on land and water, hunting for downed birds, bird handling and delivery, manners, steadiness, and obedience, and familiarity with all the accoutrements of hunting.  Includes force fetching.  Requires an average of 4-5 months.

Pointing Labrador Training
We will train your Pointing Labrador (PL) to be steady to wing and shot, whoa, quartering, etc.  We WILL NOT train or do any training on the point, each dogs point is unique to itself.  If you have a flushing Labrador that you would like to have trained to sit-to-flush, that can be done.

Hunt Tests
We also train dogs to be handled by their owners, and work with owners who are learning to be better handlers and if they wish to run their dogs in UKC, AKC or APLA hunt test they will be successful.

Cost
$550 per month
Includes birds, first month due in advance

Anderson Creek Puppy or Dog Training

Individual Training Sessions
Dogs will be introduced to the “Whoa” command and properly introduced to live quail or pigeons. The Owner will also have hands on introductions on yard work and field work as well. The sessions will be short at first because of the puppy’s attention span.

Cost
1 hour session $35.00
2 hour session $60.00

30 Day Program
This program will have your dog or puppy pointing birds and retrieving so you can actually take him to the field and do a real hunt.

Housing
If dogs/puppies are house trained they may be kept at home with the trainer, otherwise they will be kept in an outside kennel.

Cost
$650.00 + Cost of birds (estimated $150.00)

Training Methods
No ‘shock’ collars or electronic controls will be used if owner requests or is not going to use these controls. Remember our “Motto”

“We never ever spoil our bird dogs until they open their eyes.” James Farrar
