Building a puppy's retrieving desire is as important as training. It's up to the trainer to ask your dog to be obedient & drop the bumper/bird, however, it's up to your dog to want to continuously go after the birds in the hunting field. Our Puppy Head Start program is available to dogs as soon as they are ready to come home.
We build the desire to retrieve through lots of marks in lots of situations. Your puppy will be exposed to the following: Birds, bumpers, ducks, different types of swimming terrain, decoys, different types of land terrain as well as introduced to training pistol sounds. Your puppy will also be exposed to an introduction to obedience.
When a puppy leaves this program they are little soldiers who have only developed good habits and are ready to move on to the next level of retriever training or just to being a good fun obedient family pet. All retriever puppy work is based on praise and fun.
