If you are looking for a hunting companion or competitive level Gun Dog, we can help tailor a program specific to you and your dog’s needs.
Silverbrook Kennels accepts dogs five months of age or older for gun dog training. It is necessary for a solid obedience and collar conditioning program be instilled before more advanced disciplines are taught.
Our program concentrates strongly on good handling skills and positive dog/handler relations. We feel it is important for you to understand how to work your dog and learn the specifics of the process we are teaching. We focus heavily on your handling skills related to the level your dog is currently learning. You progress as your dog progresses.
We suggest that you attend hunt test handling clinics, and various training clinics hosted at our kennel, or in conjunction with your retriever club to enhance your personal handling skills. Silverbrook Kennels offers a unique approach to dog and handler relations. We truly care that you are successful handling your own dog when training is complete.
