My philosophy with training is to train the owners and the dogs at the same time. I tend to be tougher on the owners than on the dogs, however I want everyone to succeed. My training is a mixture of positive reinforcement, working with the dogs’ natural ability, and having rules for the dogs that work for each individual dog and owner. I will send you home with things to work on with your dog after each session, and will have expectations of you to work on it to the best of your abilities while alone. I am always available to call and ask questions if you run into something you are having problems with or don’t understand. I want to help you achieve your own personal goals for a dog, be it a hunting dog or just a well behaved obedient dog, while still keeping your dog confident and happy.
- Training is $55 per 1 hour session*
Training includes: basic obedience, how to start working with the dogs’ natural ability, introduction to water, swimming, introduction to birds, wing work, retrieving, blind retrieves, how to encourage correct pointing, how to encourage honoring points, how to flush, how to work more than one dog together. I will also help the owner train their dogs for NAVDHA titles (Natural Ability, Utility Prep, and Utility), AKC titles (Junior Hunter, Senior Hunter, Master Hunter), and can get you in contact with people who can help you show your dogs in confirmation shows.
*If you choose to work with me in training your dog I do have a training agreement that I ask you to read and sign. It helps me keep track of you and your dog’s progress as well as lets you tell me exactly what you are hoping to achieve with your dog.
