Versatile Hunting Dog Training
We have had a very high demand for training versatile dogs so we've created a program that is centered around the dog that can do it all. A dog that is just as capable in the dove field or the duck blind as he is pointing a covey of bobwhite quail or trailing a crippled rooster pheasant. This program is designed for the versatile breeds such as German Wirehair Pointers, Wirehair Pointing Griffons, Brittanys, Pudelpointers, and all other versatile breeds. These dogs seem to be the perfect fit for the individual hunter in Texas. They both point and retrieve so they can be used for everything including retrieving dove and ducks, pointing quail and pheasants, tracking wounded game, and also make great companions or house pets. We also have a very strong breeding program for versatile dogs so check out our puppy page for more information on future breedings.
Our Basic Versatile Training Program lasts around 6 months and covers all wing shooting scenarios as well as Obedience. At the end of the program the dog will be an obedient companion as well as a very capable pointer and retriever ready to tackle any type of bird hunt you can take him on. We can also customize the program to fit each dog to their owner's individual needs.
In all of our programs, we prefer to get dogs in for training at a young age so that we can make sure they are developed the right way as they mature. It is especially important with the versatile dogs to make sure they build retrieving desire at a young age. If you can't get the dog to us as a pup, we strongly recommend that you spend as much time as you can working on encouraging retrieve drive in the pup.
We also offer an Advanced Versatile Training Program. This program is customized to each individual dog and could last as little as 1-2 additional months or as long as 6-8 additional months depending on the needs of the owner.
