What others are saying

Thank you so much Chris Jobman, and all of Flatlander Kennels for your hard work, day in and day out for all of the sacrifice you give to the dogs and families you train. You and your team are truly “Best of the Best.” I can’t thank you enough for all of the training and trialing you do for these dogs as well as your dedication to each of the dogs and owners as individuals. Despite the number of dogs that are trained by Team Flatlander, one can ask about any one of the dogs and Chris and his team will tell you intricate personality details about each one of them.

Puppy Head Start Program:

Your 8 week old pup is raised in our house till 6 months old and treated like a member of the family. We socialize them and prepare them to start formal training.

Gun Dog Program:

This is usually a 4-6 month program. They will learn obedience, collar conditioning, force fetch, condition to gun fire, steadiness, single marked and water. Simulated hunting scenarios. This will produce a nice all purpose gun dog that can waterfowl hunt in the morning and upland hunt in the afternoon.


This program includes the Gun Dog Program and builds off of that....Basics are truly the foundation of a truly trained dog and must be done thoroughly before advancing onto the other programs.


After this program your dog will be proficient at multiple marked retrieves and advanced hunting scenarios along with simple blind retrieves. A dog who has finished transition is truly a joy to hunt with!!


After this program your dog will get YOU invited to hunt!!! These animals are truly amazing. They will be able to handle multiple marked retrieves and BIG land & water blind retrieves. Basically this dog can hunt in any environment and handle any scenario. Your dog with be a truly "Finished Retriever".
