ALL programs require your dog to be current on all vaccinations (DHLPP, CORONA, BORDATELLA, RABIES). Veterinary verification is required! This is for everyone's safety. Heartworm disease is a growing problem and I suggest all dogs be tested prior to coming in, and be put on the preventative medication while here at the kennel.
Waterspook Labradors' basic GUN DOG training program averages 3 to 4 months. During this time your retriever will learn all the necessary OBEDIENCE** commands, polite delivery to hand, single water retrieves through water, tules and decoys (and boats if desired), single land retrieves through various terrain and cover, and upland hunting if desired. More advanced training such as hand signals, multiple marks, and steadiness requires a more lengthy program. I use plenty of birds during the dogs training, thus ensuring proper transition from training to the hunting field.

"Dakota" Mitchell - Successful Obedience Grad.
Waterspook Labradors' OBEDIENCE training program is 6 weeks long. A graduate from this program will learn all the necessary commands desired to become a good canine citizen: here/ coming when called to voice/whistle), heel, sit, down, stay, waiting at doors, no jumping up, etc.
I can also work with your dog on house manners, such as kenneling to their own personal bed.
Waterspook Labradors' also offers PRIVATE OBEDIENCE sessions, for those of you who cannot bear to leave your companion at camp. These are one hour sessions throughout a 6 week course. I meet with the owner once weekly, and the rest of the week before the next session you can work with your dog at home.
