Ages:  All ages

Duration: 2-6 Weeks

Our Pre-season Tune Up is 2-6 weeks long depending on the owners desired areas of focus. We offer this program for the retriever owner that wants to polish their dog up before hunting season.  During this time your dog will be put in hunting type situations with emphasis on areas similar to the types of hunting you and your dog will experience during the season. The program is molded to each dog’s ability in the field. This is a great time for your retriever to shed those extra pounds they picked up over the summer and get tuned-up for the upcoming season. This is also a great time to get your retriever back onto upland birds to hit the ground running this fall.
