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 retrieves..land 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.
