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.
