The Upland Hunting Retriever Training program is designed to advance your dog quickly using
your retrievers natural ability and trainability.  The processes of teaching your dog to quarter,
track, flush, retrieve and hunt dead is accomplished using multiple training techniques and tools.

With all flushing dogs we use quail, pigeons, chuckar & pheasants.  We use clipped wing running
pheasant for tracking skills and all upland dogs are taught to hunt and retrieve in all types of
cover.  All upland dogs are taught to quarter off the whistle and sit to the whistle. The whistle
allows us to keep the dog in range and is used to call the dog off of hens and missed birds.  We
also expose your dog to different hunting grounds to socialize them to as many different hunting
scenarios as possible.  Advanced work would include sit to the flush and steady through the shot

For those wanting to have a finished Pointing Labrador, we use training methods that are very
similar to our pointing dog training. This type of training teaches the dog to hold their point and be
steady to wing and shot, allowing the hunter to own a first class Pointing Labrador and compete
for advanced titles.             
Our Pointing Labrador Upland Training program is
designed to bring out the natural staunchness in your
Labrador, while incorporating the same fundamentals
that all flushing dogs need.  Dogs are worked on
liberated & wild birds to ensure that the dog can not
creep in or break point and catch the bird, which creates
a strong desire to stay on point.  This training also allows
the owner and dog to compete for a Certified Pointer
title from the American Pointing Labrador Association, if
