Intro to Retrievers/Flushers

Overall, the success of your flusher or retriever lies in your hands first. Additionally, how you define success matters greatly.

We define success by the dog succeeding at hunting and handling in a classy, upbeat, motivated manner. We like our dogs to enjoy hunting, and enjoy handling. This benefits us as hunters in two ways: We have a dog that is control and ready for the gun; We have a dog that will hunt under control – but harder – should there be a scarcity of birds in the field. Either way you look at it, you’re benefiting from a well trained retriever or flusher.

Come spend a day with us for our Introduction to Flusher / Retriever Training. We’ll start the day by covering fundamentals which will enable you to better achieve the goals you set in your training regiment. We’ll also cover a host of “Do’s and Don’ts” for your training curriculum. We’ll teach you the basics when it comes to yard work routines, as well as field work to get your dog handling under control at longer distances. Your dog will then have exposure to birds, all in a group setting.
