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

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”

Henri is doing great!!! He has stolen all of our hearts and we couldn’t be more in love. Thank you for our sweet baby!!!
Abel has been the most awesome family dog ever. He is enjoying living on the farm and having freedom to explore and hunt whenever he pleases! We love him!
Bella is 9 1/2 months old and the sweetest GSP. She is having a lot of fun at college in GA with her dad. When she comes home to NC she loves playing in the yard with the pine needles and pine cones and burying sticks in the sand. She’s the best! So much fun!
Gunner is one of the best additions to our family.
Pepper, Roscoe, Sammy and Doc (the German Shorthaired Pointers) did a great job this weekend. Ryan and Steve did OK guiding.
