Our Training Programs

Deep Fork Retrievers is the premier hunting retriever training facility.

Our main emphasis is on training quality gun dogs. However, whether a dog is run in competition or used as a hunting companion, the basic training program is the same. We believe the key to successful training is to view it as a developmental process and our training style develops all of the skills necessary for your dog to become a top-notch hunting retriever.

Once your dog has completed the Deep Fork Retrievers Gun Dog Training Program, it is ready to hunt – marking competently, steady to wing and shot, and reliably delivering to hand. This level of training competence is typically achieved in four to six months, depending upon the dog’s ability and background.

Puppy Head Start Program

We know that the early experiences in a puppy’s life are very important to its future training. Our Deep Fork Retrievers’ Puppy Head Start Program is designed to help a puppy form a willing temperament, increase its memory, and build a bond with its owner that will become the foundation for future teamwork.

In this program, your hunting retriever puppy will learn verbal commands and whistle and hand signals. We also systematically introduce your puppy to swimming, birds, gunfire, decoys, boats, and marking, ensuring momentum, desire and trainability. Our developmental program produces a puppy that by the end of the curriculum is ready to be trained.
