In this workshop you will gain valuable knowledge on how to start training your hunting dog or get the most out of the dog you currently have. Training begins with obedience and ends with a dog that is eager to work with you. We’ll show you how to get started and what these amazing dogs are capable of doing with the right positive training.
Topics will include obedience, water work, field work, tracking work, retrieving work, gun work, and bird work amongst others. If you bring your own dog please be sure to bring a picket line (a way to set the picket line) to set them in the shade while you attend the workshop. Bring a water bowl and water, bring enough water to wet the dog to keep them cool, as well as drink it. Bring food, and please check on your dog often. This workshop is not just for dog owners however, if you are thinking about getting a bird dog this training would prove beneficial to you. Dogs will not be allowed to stay in closed vehicles.
Other Information: Primitive camping (no water or electric hookups) will be available on site for free. Lunch is provided on both Saturday and Sunday but all other meals are the responsibility of participants.
