HUNTING DOG

TRAINING

We offer multiple different levels of training for a dog of any age. Here at Northern Plains Gundogs we train working retrievers and pointers but will also train your at home companions! Your dog will have the opportunity to experience multiple different types of terrain, cover, and water systems as well as plenty of different types of live birds! The setup of our ground allows us to, even in the off season, run dogs through real hunting scenarios and situations. After the completion of your dog’s training, our trainers will take the time to teach and show you what your dog has learned over the course of his/her stay and how to handle the dog.

PUPPY DOG TRAINING

STARTING AT

$550

*per month

Training Season starts in May (Typically takes 1-2 months)

  • Start your new puppy on obedience, bird introduction, bumpers, retrieving, and kennel conditioning.  This is an integral part to prepare him/her for the Basic Training Program.
  • Puppy Socialization – This is a Very Important aspect when it comes to having a good dog that is not afraid.  So many people that train dogs at home don’t socialize them enough.  Lack of socialization causes cowering, bird stealing, aggressive dogs/fighting, etc.  The puppy training is the foundation to our overall program.
