Dog Training Services: San Francisco Bay Area & Sacramento

We provide professional field training for both upland and waterfowl dogs. Whether your goal is a first-rate hunting companion, a Master Hunter or a Field Trial Champion, we can help prepare you and your dog to do the job. Retrieving, steadiness, quartering pointing and water work instruction are all available. We can fix problems like inconsistent retrieves, hard-mouth, breaking, gun-shyness or lack of control. Our 30+ years of experience, training hundreds of field dogs, can make the difference for you and your dog.

How do we start?

We recommend starting with several private lessons at your home. After we determine your goals for your dog and you understand our approach to training, your dog will be able to go on our day-long field training trips. You can come along or greet your dog when he returns from a fun day afield.

What do private field lessons cost?

Hour-long private lessons (for you and your dog) cost $150 per session. Our daily field trip charge is the same as an in-home one-hour lesson: $150 per session. Your attendance on field trips is optional.

Can we customize my dog’s training?

Each field dog is trained to meet your individual needs. We accept dogs at all ages and training levels – from started to finished dogs. We design a customized plan for each dog to facilitate their progress. So, whether you want a combination pheasant/waterfowl dog or a specialist, we can make it happen. All field dog training is done through private lessons and daily field trips; we do not currently offer board&train for field dog training.
