New York bird dog training

Our specialty is starting young pups from four months of age until they reach approximately one year of age.  It is vital to plant all of the "bird dog seeds"  as soon as possible in a puppies development.  Our goal is to implement the fundamentals in all puppies until they reach the year of one year.  At that time, they will handle well and point birds staunchly.

Our locations, north of the Adirondack Park in New York, enables us to work extensively during the summer months.  During the winter months, we are able to work dogs regardless of the temperature.


Each dog is afforded an individual kennel run in a temperature  controlled environment.  The runs are cleaned and disinfected twice a day.  Proof of shots is required.

Our training method is achieved through positive reinforcement. Unlike many trainers we do not use shock collars as are "be all end all" to training.


We will evaluate your dog's potential on site. Prior to leaving your dog with us, we will discuss your goals and expectations. And set training goals for the length of stay.


Training and fundamentals are not the only keys to success. Our dogs are "roaded" in harnesses daily. Usually averaging 5 miles a day.


Owners of older dogs , previously trained by us, are always welcome to return for refreshers and conditioning.



Our flight pen contains 200 quail at all times. All dogs are trained with game birds.
