Upland Game and Waterfowl Training
( Specialize in Training Retrievers for Upland Game and Waterfowl Hunting )
Basic Field Training ( This training is only an introduction )
* Basic field training, on average takes 4 weeks to complete.

Please Note:
If your dog has little to no obedience, if your dog likes to play while retrieving, if your dog only retrieves when its in the mood, if your dog likes to chew on birds or refuses to retrieve birds, your dog will then need to go through the trained retrieve to fix those issues before starting this program. In order for a dog to excell in this program a dog must have solid obedience and a reliable retrieve with a proper delivery to hand.

The following skills will be taught in this program
* Introduction to the shotgun ( 12 gauge )
* Introduction to retrieving from a field stand and through decoys
* Basic skills for upland game hunting ( develop a strong desire to hunt in medium to heavy cover )
* Birds will be used in this program ( Pheasants and Ducks )
* Remote control throwers ( Zinger Wingers ) will be used to help simulate real hunting situations.
* Shotgun ( 12 gauge ) Field Trial Blanks will be used to simulate shooting in real hunting situations.

Please Note
Waterfowl Training
If you want a solid steady dog in a blind or on a boat or if you want your dog to learn sit to whistle and casting, that level of training will need a serious commitment by you the owner at home and because of that I am no longer offering waterfowl training as a program, but instead after a dog has completed the trained retrieve and basic field introduction, I will then provide waterfowl training to those who want it with private lessons, which will be offered as a 1 hour lesson once a week at a cost of $50.00 per 1 hour lesson. If you have no way of working your dog at home on these skills, then it will be impossible for you to keep your dog at this level of training and it will definitely affect your dog's performance in the blind or on the boat.
Training Programs

* Dog's must be 7 months old or older before starting Gun Dog Training

* Dogs must be cleared of all parasites.
* Dogs must be cleared of fleas and ticks.
* Dogs must be groomed and nails trimmed.
* Owners supply their own dog food.
* Owner's are encouraged to visit their dogs weekly to check on the progress.
Trained Retrieve
On average, this program takes 8 weeks to complete

Please note: There is no field training in this program, the trained retrieve is about having more control of your dog and your dog's retrieve, this training converts the playful natural retrieve to an obedient controlled retrieve with the proper delivery to hand.

Many people fail to understand why a dog that already retrieves naturally should be trained to retrieve. The truth is that the forced retrieve is more about control than it is about retrieving, a dog that completes a forced retrieve program is more reliable and obedient than dogs who control how and when birds are retrieved. A dog that is properly force trained will retrieve birds you want retrieved, in the order you want them retrieved, return to heel and properly deliver to hand, the retrieve is completed on your terms not the dog's terms.

I honestly believe this training is the foundation to all gun dog training and all dogs should go through this training before starting the field work. This training is the most important and the most difficult training a dog and trainer will ever go through and is a must if you want a reliable retrieve and delivery to hand.


The following skills will be taught in this program:
* Obedience, your dog will be collar conditioned to the following commands ( come, heel and sit/stay )
* Force Fetch, your dog will be collar conditioned to the following commands ( fetch, hold and give )
* Dogs will learn to retrieve on land and in water.

* Birds will be used in this program to ensure a proper retrieve and delivery to hand ( Pheasants and Ducks )

Once your dog has successfully completed this program your dog will be obedient on and off the field, your dog will have a strong desire to retrieve, your dog will understand how to properly hold/carry and deliver to hand, your dog will completely understand what his or her job is and will be ready to start field training.
Whether it's Gun Dog Training or just Obedience Training, Stevenson Gun Dog and Obedience highly recommends and uses Dogtra.
When it comes to Gun Dog Training, Stevenson Gun Dog and Obedience highly recommends and uses Zinger Winger remote throwers.
When it comes to birds, Stevenson Gun Dog and Obedience highly recommends Oakwood Game Farm.
