We provide a foundation for obedience training and good canine behavior while keeping it a fun puppy experience. We use a reward based training system to teach and bring out the natural Retriever behaviors you want to see in these very young students. We never expect 100% perfection from dogs we train, but we want to get dogs to about 70-80% obedience and compliance by the time they leave us. That means the owner/handler will need to keep up with their training.
Approximately Starting at 7 weeks.
Shawnee Hills Retrievers offer basic crate training for young puppies, as well as basic obedience training for puppies. For hunters, we also offer advanced training in water fowl hunting.
