Gun Dog Training
Three (3) months of training is $2,000.00 in total. That includes birds and feed. We will take monthly dogs from time to time as space opens up. Monthly training is $950.00 and also includes birds and food. We also offer 1/2 day ($150.00) and full day ($200.00) "problem and solve" training for handlers having issues and want some extra help to solve the issue. (per dog) We also offer "Forced Fetch" at the cost of $1,500.00. The time it takes depends on the dog but most of the time between3-5 months.
We are able to train in Delavan, IL at Sur le Delavan Kennel, Bloomfield, IA on our family farms, Double Cluck Lodge in Canton, IL.
The training will last for three months.
