There are several programs for training offered. One is for Field Trials and Advanced Hunt tests. This goes on 12 months a year, and from January through May resides in Texas so dogs can be trained on land and water and be ready for the early spring tests. Here dogs get ducks or pheasant fliers weekly. There is a trip fee for the winter trip, the cost of which is contingent on the number of dogs going, the price of the training leases and cost of travel. For dogs that will be professionally run in the trials, there is also a handling and travel fee for each stake to cover costs of events and travel.
There is also a 12 month program for Hunt Test dogs, gundogs and pointing Labs. This remains in Colorado and involves land retrieving, water retrieving in the river or sloughs, and the ponds if the water is not too cold or frozen. There is weekly upland work done where desired, using chukar or quail, occasional live duck or pheasant fliers and only birds used in retrieving work once dogs are force fetched.
Included within monthly fee is boarding, training, food, exercise and care. Additional fees are monthly heartworm, flea and tick when applicable and live birds used. Costs will be discussed in advance. Monthly training fee is $800.
