Gun Dog Training

Our gun dog training instructs your bird dog for foot hunting. We highlight obedience, retrieving, field training and water work at our training facility in Franklin, Ohio.

Each bird dog training program is individually structured around the particular needs of your hunting dog. We encourage owners to become involved with the dog’s progression with one-on-one sessions upon completion of the process.


Field Trial Training

This intense program requires dogs to check into the kennel for a minimum stay of 30 days. Training levels and goals determine the length of stay but this program turns out bird dogs of the highest caliber.

Our award-winning methods build a solid foundation for your dog to perform at the highest level. Field trial dogs are trained using the consistent high standards that achieve quality performances – allowing the dogs to think for themselves and to problem solve in all situations.


Puppy Training

Quite possibly the most crucial program to the success of your dog, our field bred Puppy Program is where we set the stage for your dog’s future. Your pup is born with a variety of different talents that are bred into his/her genes. This program will make the most of their instincts and breeding.

Throughout the program, we will bring out as much bird desire in your pup as possible. We will excite the puppies with regard to prey and turn them onto birds. Along with getting that bird desire, they will begin learning how to use their nose to find and flush game. Pups will begin with dead birds, then move on to clipped wing birds and finally onto flushing live game.

We will also take the common thing that we see hunting dogs develop, a fear due to improper introduction of gunfire, and introduce it the proper way. We will work at your dog’s pace as to not promote the fear of any of these obstacles.
