Bird Boys & Trainers at Perfect 10 Kennals
After obtaining your retriever, the fun begins! We'll work together to train your pup into an effective hunting companion—a bird dog with style and class. Even if your dog is not going to hunt, we can maximize your enjoyment of your pet by providing basic obedience training.
Training Services offered include:
|We offer clean runs and feed one of the highest quality foods available—Purina Pro Plan. We keep a supply of live birds for training, and our methods are the most up-to-date techniques used today, developed by the top trainers in the country. You can expect that your dog will be worked five days a week on pheasants, chukkar and ducks. Our training program includes a complete obedience sequence where the dog will learn to come when it is called on either the here command or whistle. No more yelling and screaming at your hunting companion. It will quarter in the field in search of the elusive ringneck pheasant and deliver a shot bird right to your hand without dropping the bird. The dog will be collar conditioned so that it will remain reliable over time and you will be able to use a collar, if you choose. Your dog will receive an abundance of marked retrieves so that it will be able to find your birds and bring them back to you during the hunting season. We encourage you to attend some training sessions so that you will learn what your dog knows and get the most out of the dog.|
