For many dogs, it all begins with Gun Dog Kindergarten. The course is designed to introduce pups to the field, birds, the shotgun, and to hunt by nose instead of sight. Pups are boarded for 2-3 weeks. Different breeds develop at different rates and individual dogs’ development varies greatly. We will work with the owner to assess whether a pup is ready for this training. Objectives are:
Natural prey drive sparked.
Loves to find birds.
Associates shotgun and birds while having no fear of the shotgun report.
Follows basic commands in the field.
