A Three Day Spaniel Training Seminar In Georgia!

We will conduct a three-day training seminar at our home in Mitchell, GA on May 17-19, 2019. Dogs and participants will be limited so contact us to reserve your slot…it is likely that they will fill quickly. We will be covering our entire program from an 8-week old puppy to a finished gun dog with all the exposure, shaping, obedience training and field training that is required. This is for gun dogs, hunt test participants and those with field trial aspirations. You can train your own dog, you probably just need some guidance on how to get the job done.

The objectives for our Basic Gun Dog Camp are to set a strong foundation for your dog, which includes proper introduction and exposure to birds, proper gun introduction, basic obedience, hunting in control and basic retrieving. This camp is focused on getting your puppy or young dog off to the right start before negative traits are established. This camp is generally available any time of the year, except October and November, and generally is for three months. The cost is $3,600 to $4,800, plus vet expenses. Training birds are included. At the end of the camp, your dog will come when called or whistled, hup/sit when told by voice or whistle, be e-collar conditioned if you choose, hunt for birds within range and generally retrieve.

Our Irish Bred English Springer Spaniel “Ferg” On Chukar!

START YOUR YOUNG PUP WITH A STRONG FOUNDATION!

Basic Gun Dog Development Camp!

Todd had worked many dogs in the morning on Chukar, so there were birds all over the property. This was a great opportunity to run one of our younger dogs on the loose Chukar. This was an hour and a half walk with Ferg, he learned so many things in that walk. The video I believe is 9 mins long, I so enjoyed watching all the fun that Ferg was having this day I didn’t cut much. Sit back and enjoy the video.

Developing Spaniels

I often tell people that I do not train spaniels…I develop spaniels. It is a very fine distinction but a very important one. To me, a “trainer” implies a superiority over the pupil that is destined to fail from the beginning. A person that “develops” is destined to always be searching for ways to enhance communication and is learning to build a relationship to bring the most out of the pupil.
