Instructor: Cassia Turcotte
If you want to compete in retriever hunt tests or train your own waterfowl hunting companion, then this course is for you. We will build on Gun Dog Foundations to give you the skill sets you will need to progress to the next level and beyond. We will focus on the proper mechanical skills of both dog and handler, to develop independent proficiency using a concept based approach.
These skills sets are broken out into five specific concept areas complete with progressions and fun training drills and games. Each concept area can be progressed and generalized at different rates based on the specific focus points of each team. This class is perfect for those with limited time and/or access to training grounds. Finally-- a complete retriever program for the +R owner/handler/trainer.
