Orvis Sandanona's Dog Training Seminars with Mike Stewart of Wildrose Kennels, an Orvis Endorsed Breeding and Training Facility, will be held on May 25th- May 28th, 2017.
The Wildrose methodology of gundog training is perfect for the waterfowl and upland game hunter seeking a calm, controllable game finding companion which is equally proficient in the field as compatible in the home. The "Wildrose Way" is a totally unique approach to gundog training perfected in the field and marsh—realistic hunting situations.
Participants will learn how to train their gundogs for a variety of game through positive reinforcement, avoiding the use of electric collars, force fetch, spike collars and other mechanical training techniques. You will see the difference in dogs after just one session!
All gun dog breeds welcome. Don’t worry if you don’t have your dog yet. You can still learn and train with us.

Rain gear (we go rain or shine)

*these items can be purchased, on location, in our Pro shop.
