We Specialize in Gundog Training for both Upland and Waterfowl. This is a 4 month program in which your dog will be exposed to different types of terrain, cover, water, and all basic Hunting situations.
Your dog will be force-fetched, steady, and deliver birds to hand. We will strive to have your dog complete land retrieves in excess of 150 yards, and water retrieves in exces of 75 yards.
We work with you to put an emphasis on how and where you hunt so that we can replicate the situation as close as possible.
With over 800 Master Hunter passes and over 500 Hunt-Test Titles, we can provide the best possible training for results. I specialize in problem dogs, and have the experience to overcome many problems that most trainers give up on.
We have the training grounds and facilities to provide all situational needs so that your dog can excel at Tests. I will also provide you the Handler all the education that you need should you choose to be the Handler. We start our season in South Texas so that your dog can get a head start to the season and water work.
This program is designed to give your dog a foundation in all the basics of Obedience. This six-week program will be designed after consultation with each owner on both the strengths and weaknesses of your pet.
We will work to deter problem behaviors specific to your dog. All basic commands such as "Sit", "Heel", "Stay" will be worked on daily. After Two weeks we then want to see the owner as much as possible so that we can develop the tools needed for the owner to become proficient with.
The Advanced Gundog Program is a 9-12 month program which is a continuation of the Basic Gundog Program. Your dog will learn to do Multiple Retrieves and Blind Retrieves on both land and water. Giving your dog the training to complete these difficult retrieves makes your hunting experience much more enjoyable and easy.
You will be able to complete those tough retrieves across the ditch or pond that you could not get to before. You will no longer have to slug through that tough terrain to get to that bird. You will no longer have to leave fallen birds in the field.
Furthermore, you will have much more control of your dog which provides safer hunting situations. Having a finished dog is seriously just more fun.
Workouts are for owners who wish to train their own dogs, but need some help and/or direction. We offer individual workouts which are one on one sessions in which I give assistance to help guide your training program.
These sessions are scheduled as to time and date in which both parties have availability.
We also provide group workouts which are geared only to the field work portion of training. We have a group that trains most days and we encourage you to join us so that your dog can get the help with field retrieves.
Need access to different water or terrain we probably have it. Just give us a call and we will schedule a time.
At different points throughout the year we offer classes. The goal of our classes is to provide specific training for difficult areas of retriever training. The following is list of some of our classes.

Obedience, hunting, and competition all require teamwork. It also takes a training group to provide all the situations in order to train a "Finished" Dog. I also encourage you to give us a call so we can help answer any question that you might have.
