Hunting Dog Basic Obedience

This professional gun dog training program is for hunting dogs who are at least 5 months old.

There are two options for the Basic Hunting Dog Obedience program, a 4-week program and an 8 week program.

The 4-week program includes on-leash commands and whoa training.  The 8-week program includes on/off leash commands, whoa training and whistle commands.

Hunting dogs at this age, much like young children, differ in maturity and comprehension.  That is why this program is so important.
