Hunting Dog Prep

Dog Training

“Tank,” Fall 2015

Anyone who has hunted behind a well-trained, obedient and motivated gun dog knows the importance of good training.  At Minnesota Canine Consulting, we prepare hunting dogs and field trial dogs who will work and compete in the field.  We are hunters and outdoorsmen with experience hunting behind various breeds.  We know what it takes to train a confident and motivated gun dog.  With this in mind, our training program focuses on the following concepts:

  • Field Quartering
  • Steady to Shot
  • Gunfire Neutral (no response to loud noises/distractions)
  • Dog Socialization
  • Retrieval Training
  • Advanced Obedience
  • Electronic Collar Conditioning and Training

Dogs in this program will be trained over a two, three or four month period and then returned to the handler.  The amount of time needed to train the dog depends upon a number of factors, including: dog’s age, skills requested for training and whether the handler requests a completely finished product or simply foundational obedience and other training.  For more information and to get started on developing your field dog prep, contact Minnesota Canine Consulting today!
