|As hunters and dog owners ourselves, we recognize that owning a well-bred dog is just part of having a great working dog and companion. Proper dog training is critical. A bird dog that behaves well and listens to commands is a better hunting dog and companion, and safer in the field. Often, lack of time, skills and knowledge make it impossible to train your hunting dog properly on your own; and the research to find a top trainer can be daunting. Our gun dog training program has done the research for you. After careful consideration, we've included the country's finest hunting dog trainers, backed by our guarantee of satisfaction. Your bird dog will be in the best hands of personable and knowledgeable professional sporting dog trainers for an extensive program using the most proven and humane techniques. The training is headlined by a two-week trial period, and updates on your dog's progress. If you want to get the most out of your hunting dog for years of memorable hunts and companionship, start with our new Endorsed Hunting Dog Trainer Program.
Not sure where to begin? Call or email our program director Brian Long at 845-677-6342.
