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 a one month training plan for puppies 16 weeks an older to 8 month old 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 month long 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 that will point birds, and you can confidently shoot over him.
Broke Dog: The Broke Dog program will be 3 months in duration. This 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.
Hunt Camp: This is a very special program at LSBD. Each fall there are several slots for client dogs that will be ran on wild birds across the Northwest for 3-5 weeks. They will continue their training while hunting, and are guaranteed to hunt every other day.
