PERSONALIZED IN-HOME DOG TRAINING
Houston, Texas Dog Obedience & Retriever Training Programs
Now there’s no need to send a dog away to receive top quality training. HuntersCreek Retrievers’ training program and philosophy differs from many other "professional trainers" who take a dog away and board them during training. This can be very hard on any family and the dog. Our goal is to provide positive training reinforcement with the dog and owner close to home in a familiar environment.
We also recognize that training takes time as opposed to some national dog training franchises who promise a permanent fix with a one time, two-hour session with a dog. Yeah Right, for those who believe that claim, I have some amazing ocean front property in Arizona for sale!
We believe a dogs master plays an integral part in training a well mannered family pet and working retriever. Our goal is to train both dog and master for success at home and in the field. We don't remove a dog from their everyday surroundings; we make house calls, to assist both dog and owner to train a working companion! Basic Dog Training is available to all breeds.
First and foremost are the basics! Obedience is the number one factor determining a dog’s success. Obedience training is the foundation for all future advanced training.
Each dog will be taught five commands on and off leash: Sit, Stay, Come, Heel, Down and Kennel for Crate Training. We will use a variety of distractions to ensure the dog will be obedient under challenging circumstances. Verbal Commands, Whistle and Hand Signals will be incorporated to insure the dog can be controlled in a variety of environments whether it is from two feet or one-hundred yards.
Consistency is the key! Each command must be consistently enforced, exactly the same way, every time; never leave a dog the opportunity to question who has the authority. Repetition and Consistency are the difference between failure and success, just like playing the piano…one wrong key can ruin an entire symphony.
INITIAL MASTER/DOG EVALUATION
HuntersCreek Retrievers initial one hour evaluation will determine the dog and owner’s capabilities. During this time we evaluate the dog’s personality, temperament, drive, and responsiveness to training. HuntersCreek Retrievers monthly training contracts are based on travel distance, the dog’s capabilities, and the owner’s training goals.
BASIC OBEDIENCE TRAINING
The next step after obedience is Level One Retriever Training. The objective here is to teach the dog to retrieve objects on command, hold them firmly, and deliver directly to hand. This will ensure a reliable retrieve-to-hand every time. Commands will include: Steady, Fetch, Hold, and Give.
RETRIEVER TRAINING – LEVEL ONE
• LAND RETRIEVESSpace
During each additional Level of Retriever Training, Obedience will be reinforced. As a professional Duck and Goose guide for five years I saw more than one owner with an extraordinary retriever who could not or did not know how to foster the full potential of their hunting companion.
Many times these were professionally trained dogs with owners that had been absent during the retriever training and missed reading the “owners manual” for operating their retriever. Recognizing a “working retriever” is the ultimate goal, every hunter wants to avoid a trek through mud and muck or a freezing swim for a wounded bird. Space
HuntersCreek Retrievers involves both the master and dog to insure both are ready for field work. Obedience is the number one factor determining success in the field. I've seen more than one flight of ducks or geese flare because an owner couldn't keep their dog controlled. Bring an undisciplined dog to the blind and this is absolutely one of the fastest ways to turn hunting buddies into enemies and reduce hunting invites!
RETRIEVER TRAINING – LEVEL 2
• WATER WORK
Level Two Retriever Training will build on earlier training as we reinforce steady holding in place until released, marking, double retrieves, directional cues, blinds and proper delivery from land or water. This training will assure a working gun dog capable of performing in the majority of hunting situations within fifty to eighty yards.
Again repetition and consistency is the key for successful field work. Bird hunting with a dog like any other sport to insure game day success…Practice, Practice, Practice.
Check out HuntersCreek Retrievers training products, we’ve recently added Armadillo Foam floating training dummies. The life-like Mallard and Quail allows for scent injections directly into the foam aiding in training, marking and tracking. Additionally, the density of the foam is perfect for developing a dog’s “soft mouth” so birds aren’t returned destroyed. These are absolutely the best retrieving dummies I have used in 15 years of training.
Insure successful hunts and full bag limits, plan ahead with HuntersCreek Retrievers!
