Puppy Bird Dog Kickstart Program

When working with a dog, we always look at the dog as a whole, rather than just focusing on one specific topic or ability. We combine the use of food, proper motivation, and positive reinforcement with proper structure, leadership, and the right training tools that work best for your dog to create an all around healthy, structured, happy life in the field for all of the dogs (and their owners) that we work with.

This program includes three private training sessions that each include up to 4-6 hours of training, conditioning and exposure, birds, plus socialization and kennel time and are spaced about 1-2 weeks apart from each other. This program also includes a free pre-training evaluation.

  • Teach you about dog psychology and pack mentality to help you understand how to communicate with your puppy better, and how to read their body language better.
  • Show you the importance of proper conditioning for your puppy, and how proper exposure is necessary for your puppy to be successful in the field.
  • Give you a structured, fun, reasonable training schedule for your puppy to follow after they return home, to help them bring everything they learned with us home after each session.
