Retriever Training Program

Donnybrook Kennel And Inn specializes in the training of gun dogs for upland and waterfowl training. Doug hunts 80 days a year in two provinces of Canada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Ohio.

To prove the quality of our breeding stock, we participate in the AKC Hunt Test Program. All our dogs are trained and in top physical condition.

First Month

Our first month training program includes:
  • Kennel environment socialization
  • Detailed evaluation of personality, desire (birdiness, attitude in the water, etc)
  • Ability to accept training
  • Simple land and water retrieves
  • Fetch and basic obedience

Second and Third Month

Our second and third month training program includes:
  • Introduction to decoys and obstacles
  • More complex retrieves with boats and hunting blinds
  • Steadiness
  • Control
  • Basic handling with whistle stops and simple hand casting
At the end of the third month of training, your dog will be able to hunt all upland game and waterfowl.

Advanced Training Program

Before enrolling your dog in the advanced training program, your dog's ability will be evaluated. At the end of this program, your dog will be capable of long blind retrieves, complex diversions and difficult multiple marks.

After the completion of this program,  your dog should be able to qualify for, and go on to title in AKC Senior Hunter and Master Hunter divisions.
