Dog Training Opportunities

Dog Training Options

Every year we have a limited amount of training slots throughout the spring and summer for your future hunting partner. Dogs of all experience levels are welcome as we will tailor a specific training plan for your pup that meets your desired hunting goals.

Puppy Program:  This is for puppies 16 weeks an older or older dogs with limited experience.  This will be the most critical training period in your young pups' life.  Many trainers unknowingly get this part wrong, and create gun shy dogs.  During this phase of training we will properly introduce the pup to birds, gunfire, the HERE command, and the hunting field.  We will also work on retrieving daily.  At the end of this program you will have a pup with a solid foundation, and you can confidently shoot birds over him. 

Broke Dog: The Broke Dog program is for older dogs and puppies who are mature enough to take the next level of training. At the end of this program your dog will be able to demonstrate HEEL, WHOA, be steady to wing, steady to shot, and steady to release.  Your dog will also be started on backing other pointing dogs. 

One on One:  One on Ones are a great way for the handler to ask questions surrounding training, behavior and hunting.  Work will be done in the field with the handler, dog, and trainer. This is an opportunity for the handler to have a hands on approach to working their dog.  

Hunt Camp:  This is a very special program at LSBD.  Each summer there are several slots for client dogs that will be ran on wild birds across the Northwest and Montana for up to 6 weeks. These weeks are invaluable for younger dogs to be exposed to travel, stake outs, eating on the road, new terrain, and most of all WILD BIRDS. They will continue their training while hunting, and are guaranteed to hunt every other day.  

Bird dog boarding:  on occasion we have space for your favorite hunting partner. Call for availability.
