Upland Pointing Dog Training

Our programs are designed to keep intensity in the dogs and develop a dog that works FOR its owners. To accomplish this, we train your dog and follow up that training by continuing to work with you and your dog after you bring your dog home. We’ll teach you how to handle your dog and how to continue the training process.


(Dogs enrolled in the Puppy Program should be at least five months of age.)
Our Puppy Program is designed to give your puppy the right start. It is not a program designed to break puppies. It is designed to get dogs and owners used to working with each other in the field. This is a low-stress training program. It’s a fun time for puppies and their owners.

Yard Work – we’ll teach the commands, here, fetch, and kennel.
Patterning – dogs learn basic handling and quartering skills with check chord.
Birds – we introduce dogs to birds the correct way. We start with pigeons, and then move on to quail or chuckar.
*Launchers*- dogs are introduced to the automatic bird launchers to proper and safe way.
Gunfire – dogs are introduced to the cap gun and shot gun properly and safely.
Collar Introduction – dogs are introduced to an electronic collar using low stimulation and praise.

This program requires more involvement from both the dogs and the owners and is specifically tailored to enhance your dog’s natural abilities as a wild bird dog. In this training session the dogs will be ran off leash and learn to hunt in different fields and scenarios. This program is based on your dogs ability and age. Based on a training evaluation, appropriate drills will be taught.
