Handling Program - We require each client to complete our retriever handling program before receiving their dog. This consists of at least 3 days of step-by-step handling of our Master Hunter dogs, then phasing into handling your retriever. It’s a lot of work but well worth it. In addition you will learn tune up drills to keep you and your dog sharp in the off-season. You will be given a DVD of the tune up course as a reference in the event you need a refresher course. A fully furnished apartment is available on site for your stay when completing the handling course, if you so desire. Sun Valley is less than 20 minutes away.
