Bloomer, WI Dog Training Programs

Dog obedience training

We use the dog's natural behavior as a pack animal through out all our training. This more effectively builds trust and the relationship between dog and handler, creating a true partnership with your hunting companion. We offer gun dog training from puppy development through finished dog.

The charge for most of our training is by the program. This allows us to train your dog according to its needs, regardless of the amount of time required.
