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

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

We want to thank them for all their hard work at the Raleigh gun show!
Thank y’all so much for everything. Me and my dad had a great time and will definitely be coming back! (PS this was Howard and Scouts first guided hunt) Thanks again,
James, Here’s pictures of Ryan’s Whirlwind Zack . He’s my grandson Ryan’s best buddy. He stays inside with us all the time. Also he’s working birds very well. Give me a call when your next litter arrives.
James, It was great seeing you at the Raleigh Gun Show this past weekend. It has now been seven months since we took our eight week old GSP puppy home from Anderson Creek Hunting Preserve. We could not be happier with our “Daisy” since she is the most loving and affectionate addition to our family. We have taken “Daisy” to Bon-Clyde in Sanford for puppy training and she is the dog most used to show the others on how to respond to commands. Everything you told us about these GSP’s is true, they are smart, easy to train, always want to be around its owners and make a wonderful family … Continue reading
Wanted to tell you and Ken how excited we are to have gotten your last Brittany. His name is Scout. Tried to tie in his mom’s name by naming him Popcorn Sutton or Tickle but the rest of the family didn’t see the humor. Looking forward to coming down for a hunt or maybe just some target shooting. I am attaching a current photo. Thanks again. Lt. Micheal E. Glendy Raleigh Police Dept.
