The great advantage to buying a trained dog is that you get to see exactly how well the dog can hunt, how obedient it is, and it's disposition towards people, before you buy it.  You know exactly what you're getting, no surprises.  We feel that you should be able to take a Started dog out hunting and expect it to do a good job for you right from the start, and we train them with that expectation in mind.

The Started dogs that we offer for sale are dogs that we have raised from puppies.  These dogs have been through the training we use for our Started Training Program, including:

- early socialization
- on and off-leash obedience
- introduction to birds, the gun, and water
- force fetch
- collar conditioning
- steadiness training
- many land marks
- many water marks
- upland work on quartering, flushing, and retrieving

Clay is a 22 month old chocolate male.  His looks and build greatly favor his sire.  Clay loves to train almost as much as he loves to hunt, going through our Started Training Program in the summer of 2017.  He spent the fall of 2017 guiding pheasant hunts at Paul Nelson Farm by Gettysburg, SD.  Clay made hundreds of retrieves, and also started to point towards the end of the season. 

Clay is currently going through our Finished
Training Program.

Cody is a high energy, 10 month old dog that loves to work! He went through our Started Training Program in the summer of 2018 so he is force-fetched, collar-conditioned, and has retrieved birds on land and out of the water. He has also flushed and retrieved a fair amount of birds in the upland field.

Cody will probably top out around 80 lbs when he fully matures.

Avery is a 10 month old, highly intelligent dog who has inherited all the instincts of her impressive parents! She went through our Started Training Program in the summer of 2018, so she is force-fetched, collar-conditioned, and has retrieved birds on land and out of the water. Avery has also found, flushed, and retrieved a fair amount of birds in the upland field as well.

We expect Avery to top out around 65 lbs when
she fully matures.
