Training Programs

A unique, time-proven approach to customer satisfaction

    Our goal is to make it affordable for you to own a Handling Retriever. We have two programs, and each program provides training to a specific standard.

     The "Force Fetch" program starts with obedience work, collar conditioning, and leash control. We then train force fetch, off-collar obedience, and simple casting, and then we conclude by testing the dog on 20-yard pile work.

     The "Complete Handling Retriever" program takes your dog through the "Force Fetch" program and further teaches whistle control, advanced pile work, advanced casting, and advanced lining, and then puts it all together giving you the ability to run cold blinds. The "Complete Handling" program is finished when your dog will run an advanced test that incorporates multiple marks and blinds.

     We charge one straightforward price for each program. The "Force Fetch" program costs $1,000.000, and the advanced "Complete Handling Retriever" program costs $2,500.00.  You commit to giving us a chance, and we commit to getting the job done. (See success rates, disclosures, and contract below).  

     Each program is outlined in its own unique booklet. Each booklet contains: first, the contract which clearly outlines the training, and describes the finished product. Second, a handler's guide. It explains in detail how to enjoy the training your dog has had, and how to build a working relationship with him.

     Give us a chance to help you find the dog you want inside the dog you have.

Rod's Fishing 126.jpeg

I am a retired Alaskan Fisherman. Over the course of many years and lots of dogs, my hobby has turned into something I enjoy as much as hunting; helping hunters and enthusiasts enjoy a quality Retriever.
