Hunting Dog Training in South Carolina
At Rockin Robin Kennel, we have turned our passion for bird dog training into a profession. At just 13 years old, Scott combined his passion for hunting and dogs by beginning to train his own hunting dogs for bird hunting and small game hunting. Since then, he has developed a lifetime of dog training experience that has led him to create highly effective training programs that cater to each individual dog's personality and needs.
If you are looking to turn your dog into the ultimate hunting dog, you can put your trust in our training programs!
Bird Dog Training Programs
For all of our bird dog training programs, we strongly believe that successful training requires steady exposure to the type of birds your dog will be hunting. As a result, your dog will be trained regularly and consistently over live birds. It is important to recognize that dogs, like people, learn at different speeds. We see dogs that respond more quickly to our training and others that require more patience and reinforcement. We are always eager to provide and discuss an objective assessment of your dog's progress. We also encourage you to spend a day working with your dog and us at the completion of the training program to ensure clarity about commands the dog has learned, and encouragement for you to recognize that continual reinforcement is key to keeping your new hunting partner in top form.
Pointing Dog Training
Our pointing breed training program is for dogs 6 to 9 months of age, and it is approximately 3 months in duration. The program provides you with a dog that will obediently respond to the sit, kennel, here, whoa and heel commands. The dog will be collar conditioned and will hold point, remain steady-to-flush, will back/honor another dog's point, and will retrieve and deliver to hand. We will also ensure that your dog will hunt in a range that suits your style of hunting. Your dog will get plenty of experience on live birds and in simulated hunting situations, making sure he or she is ready to head into the field with you.
Flushing Dog Training
Our flushing breed training program is for dogs 6 to 9 months of age, and it is approximately 3 months in duration. Your dog will be collar conditioned to sit, heel, here, and kennel commands. The dog will hunt and quarter in range, sit on gunfire, sit to flush, and sit on a whistle while also being conditioned to retrieve and deliver to hand. We introduce plenty of live birds in diverse hunting situations such as woods and fields, offering valuable real life experience for your dog.
