Duck Dog Tip of the Week: Consistent Training

Now that many waterfowl seasons are closed, you may be looking for training programs to keep your dog sharp during the off-season. Or perhaps you are about to pick up a new puppy and will be starting his formal training later this year. There are a variety of good retriever training programs available. Your job is to find one that fits your preferred training style and your dog’s temperament — and to stick to it. Consistent training with a weekly program can help ensure that you have a better hunting partner next fall, and a retriever that will be a joy to have in the blind.”
