Hunting Dogs / Dog Training
We offer live game birds for dog training. Please contact us about bringing your dog(s) here for practice. We also occasionally have hunting dog puppies for sale (see our hunting dog news below for updates of litters). ALL DOGS BROUGHT TO THE GAME PRESERVE – MUST BE UP TO DATE ON THEIR SHOTS
$15 daily, $100 week or monthly rates available
Retriever and Pointing Labrador 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.
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.
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.
$550 per month
Includes birds, first month due in advance

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.
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.
If dogs/puppies are house trained they may be kept at home with the trainer, otherwise they will be kept in an outside kennel.
$650.00 + Cost of birds (estimated $150.00)
No ‘shock’ collars or electronic controls will be used if owner requests or is not going to use these controls. Remember our “Motto”

James, Ken: We wanted to send a quick note to say Merry Christmas! We bought Pearl from you back in April. She is so special to our family and we love her so much. It has been fun the past months to watch her grow and learn new things. She loves to run (fast!), chew on deer antlers and play fetch with her ball. We took her to meet Santa this Christmas and she tried to lick off all his makeup, she’s not afraid of anything! She is a great dog. I attached some pictures of her this Christmas. We hope everyone at Anderson Creek has a very Merry Christmas! … Continue reading
Jim / Ken, Pictures of our puppy. She’s absolutely adorable and smart! Her name is Rixey. Can’t wait till she’s hunting. Thanks,
My son gave me a puppy from your family Friday. He is one of the dogs you have pictured. I am naming him Master Colt Griffin. He has a very sweet nature and I am going him a good home and plenty of TLC. The puppy they got for their family is very nice also. PAG-Tarboro NC
This is at a year and half, Bella’s and Toby’s ‘pup’ weighs 70 lbs.
We have German Short-hair Pointers (GSP) puppies. Brown & white and black & white. Will sell AKC or unregistered. Males & females.
We picked up Maximilian Archibald last December after falling in love with him at the Raleigh Gun Show. He’s a wonderful pup who loves to kill his toys, run, play fetch, cuddle and do whatever else the rest of the family is doing. He loves water, but not baths. He’s very intelligent, at just 8 months he has learned many commands including waiting for his treat until we say “get the biscuit” and loves to point at birds in the yard or on walks. He’s a great addition to our family, we’re happy we chose Anderson Creek and we look forward in getting him to reserve for his first hunt.
