At Goldsby Retrievers & Obedience we offer several training options. Therefore, whether your goal is to have a family companion or a finished gun dog, we can meet your needs and those of your dog. Most dogs enter our training program between 7-10 months of age. However, we accept dogs in formal training as early as five months and as late as two years. Because space is limited, we encourage you to contact us well in advance of your starting date to reserve a spot for your dog.
Our training philosophy is to work with you and with your dog together. We try to find your dog’s natural talent and ability, and then we work with your dog to help it reach its maximum potential. We also work one-on-one with you in order to build your handling and communication skills.At Goldsby Retrievers & Obedience we specialize in Retriever Training catering to the waterfowl hunter. After your dog has completed our program, it will perform in almost any hunting situation. During the hunt your retriever will be obedient and under control until cast for a retrieve, yet enthusiastic about the task at hand. All trained gun dogs will feel confident working with their owners because of the relationship and bond established during the training process. If hunters plan to use multiple gun dogs, our trained retrievers are taught to remain calm and quiet while honoring the other dogs.The overall goal is for the two of you to work together not only as hunting buddies, but as a TEAM!
