Wind River Labs is now accepting dogs for obedience and field training. We take a maximum of 8 client dogs per month.
- Obedience training is a 60 day minimum at $850/month
- Gun dog training as a 90 day minimum at $850/month for the first 3 months. If additional training is desired, WR Labs has two options. First is waterfowl training (multiples, honoring, blind retrieves). Waterfowl training is billed at $850/month. The typical amount of time to have a “finished” waterfowl retriever is approximately 8 months total–sometimes less…sometimes more. The second option is upland training (we can do both pointing or flushing training), then the months after the first three are billed at $1150/month. This fee includes birds (chukar and pigeons). Typically your dog will see 30+ upland birds.
Dogs that come in to WR Labs for field training are worked 4x per day, 5 days a week and 2x per day, 1 day a week. Almost all dogs follow this 6 days a week training.
Your dog will need to be current on vaccinations, including rabies prior to drop off. Ideal age for beginning training is 5 months or older.
Training fees include food (unless they are on a specialty food) and birds, but does not include flea/tick/wormer medication.
