Training

Moosehead Retrievers is a full service training facility. I train dogs to any level start to finish but I prefer to specialize in puppy training.

I love puppies and love training them. They are so eager to learn and progress quickly. I think puppies start off naturally doing things the right way. It's only when they get a little older and start thinking more that they find other ways to do things like avoid factors such as terrain and cover. So I start them off young teaching them to drive through cover, angle across ditches and roads etc. Basically teaching them all age or finished dog concepts on a very tiny scale and ingraining them before they are smart enough to think of ways around them. The pup in the video above is 3 months old and demonstrates the advantages of learning things early. Pup in the video below is 10 weeks. I have always said I can train my own dogs better than a clients dog and that is because they have been through my puppy program and taught the right way from the start and not allowed to learn bad habits.

I also want to stress the fact that all puppies I raise fit well into their new homes when they are done and bond quickly with their owners.

Quite coincidental that both pups in these videos have the same name.

 

 

Pricing

 

Puppies 7 weeks to 4 months  $450 per month

 

4 months and up $550

 

I recommend a 2 month minimum but prefer 3. Anything less is a waste of your money and my time.

 

I also do boarding at $17 a day. Your dog will not just sit in a kennel when boarded. He will have the opportunity to get out and retrieve some birds.
