The old ways of thinking threw a dog into training around 6 months of age with no prior exposure. Our puppies begin life and are immediately introduced to the stimulus they'll speand their lives around. PROPER introduction to live birds, water and gunfire can truly make or break a retriever. Our puppy program is all about positive experiences and teaching pups how to learn. Unleashing a dogs natural ability as early as possible makes for a solid, eager to please dog into the future. We offer our Early Exposure Program to pups that will be going through our Basic Gundog Program. This program is purely an elective, its not required.
