Hands-On Retriever Training

We Simulate The Hunt As Best We Can!

Quality Hunting Retriever Training

Hunting
Program

Backwoods Retrievers uses different exercises such as avoiding and retrieving decoys, channel drills, technical blinds and swimming to train your dog. There are also numerous lots on the property that are used for standard and advanced force fetching drills, handling drills and technical marks with and without the pond.

Obedience
Classes

We believe that every dog, new or old, can benefit from training. Proper training can you the control you need to enjoy a fulfilling relationship with your pet. We offer obedience classes for larger breed dogs. From simple commands to a particular problem solved, we can help!

We have a 14 acre facility where we simulate the hunt as real as we can get. With assorted tech ponds and two acres of flooded timber on the property, your dog will experience birds, cover, gunfire, boats, blinds, water and basic obedience.

We only train up to 16 dogs at a time because we like quality, not quantity! Each dog will receive equal attention in our training programs. Our trainers normally like to train dogs from age 4 months up to a year. This allows the dog's mindset to be right so they can learn what they need to do and have the best advantage to as well.

Our trainers also allow the dog to run and play at the end of the day so they can get additional exercise and just be a dog. This also allows the dogs to bond and feed off each other and what they have learned.

If there's anything we can help with your training, let us know!
