Gun Dog Training Programs

Our gun dog training school specializes in training the bird dog for foot hunting. Obedience training, yard training, water work, retrieving and field training are combined in a bird hunting and training facility located in the heart of South Dakota's pheasant country. 
               Birds make a bird dog, so we train extensively with live birds and wild birds during season!
              Your dog is an individual and will not be forced into a cookie cutter training regime at our school. Instead the training is designed to address the personality and needs of each dog enrolled with us.

With thousands of acres of prime, wild bird habitat our facility is able to provide the exposure to birds, scent and cover that is vital to any bird dog's training.  Each bird dog training program is individually structured for the particular needs of your gun dog.

We also believe that it's important for the owner to be involved with the bird dog's training and evolution into gun dog status. Therefore, we automatically include a one-on-one training session with the dog and the owner at the end of the training program showing you the progress  of your gun dog's training and how to continue with your hunting dog training at home.

Details of the bird dog training programs can be found on the Gun Dog Training page.

We're proud of our top notch training facilities - visit that page for some pictures, but better yet - feel free to visit us personally!
