RETRIEVER TRAINING

We have trained and hunted Retrievers since 2000. I hunt everything with my dogs from Waterfowl, Upland Game Birds, and in the off season we Shed Hunt. To be honest though Water Fowl hunting would have to be my absolute favourite!! The most amazing feeling in the world is doing this with a well trained Retriever at your side. It makes you the envy of all or buddies. everyone loves to watch a well trained dog work in the field.

We understand at Oak Lane Retrievers that there are not 2 dogs alike, because of this fact we Taylor our program to each dog, as every dog has different strength and weaknesses. You tell us what you want in your Gun Dog and we will make our program fit the needs of your dog.
