We build off the foundation from the started level and begin applying it to real life hunting scenarios and more challenging hunt test style set ups. We will also teach blind work and casting. At this stage your upland hunter will be tightening up flushing the tight holding pheasants and tracking the runners in thick heavy cover, stay in range of your gun, and track both downed and crippled birds. Pointers will be expected to hold point on birds and back other pointing dogs. The seasoned waterfowler will be marking multiple retrieves at longer distances (beyond 100 yards) on both land and water and running cold blinds and handling to birds. This level of training will give you a dog fully capable of making any retrieve in a realistic hunting situation. This would work out to being in the area of a Senior Hunter level dog. This will begin once obedience, collar conditioning, force fetch, T work and double marking concepts have been taught and applied.
*Cost is $650.00 per month (plus cost of birds)
