Intro to birds, retrieving, gunshot, and water. Light obedience, and socialization.
Birds: The pup will be worked on birds, to ensure that he/she is birdy and bring out the prey (bird) drive in the pup.
Gun shot: The pup will be conditioned to the noise of the gun, starting from a training pistol and working up to various gauges of shotguns.
Obedience: We will start them on knowing voice, whistle commands on Here, Whoa, Kennel, along with the other commands needed in the field. Includes handling in the field.
Hunt & find game: The starter gun-dog he/she will be quartering (turning) the ground looking and finding game.
Point & hold game: Along with this the gun-dog will be pointing & holding the birds.
Retrieve to hand: He/she will be started on picking up your shot birds and bring back to hand. We try to get the gun-dogs to naturally retrieve.
We will work with the owner to bring his/her gun-dog to the dogs full potential.
