Intro To Hunting/Obedience (Puppy Course): Our puppy Intro course is designed to help build confidence and desire in your young bird dog. This is a combined Obedience/Hunting course for pups under 4-months of age.
Our 4-week program includes:
✔Daily obedience & crate training: We’ll go over the basic obedience mentioned above to keep your new bird dog in tune with proper behavior in the field & home.
✔Bird Introduction: Building prey drive! We keep a number of birds on hand to properly
introduce puppies to birds. We’ll spend time during our course letting your puppy
enjoy being a bird dog to create a positive association with birds & hunt training.
This is a major part of hunt training. If your puppy isn’t rewarded with a positive introduction
to hunting, they won’t enjoy it.
Bumping birds, chasing, play, running and being puppies! No rules, no pressure,
no stress, just having fun, finding birds, learning how to use their nose and be BIRD DOGS!
✔Independence/Confidence: We will get your puppy to begin confidently going out on
his/her own to work the field, & locate birds. Often pups like to hunt very close.
With experience & patience, they’ll be working the field in no time.
✔Form: We will begin getting your puppy to point. Although it’s a natural ability they are young and sometimes need bird introduction & the proper scenarios to encourage their natural abilities. We will begin getting your puppy to point on the wing and move to live birds.
✔Check Cord Work: Introducing puppies to the check cord. Getting them moving around the field with the check cord attached working on finding birds, & recalling.
We highly recommend at least a 4-week course for puppies who are participating in our into to hunt training course.
