Perfection Kennels offers our 4 day start clinics for dog owners who want to be involved in training their own puppies.  Our clinics provide four days of intensive training with our expert staff for both you and your canine friend.  The start clinic will cover proper introduction to the gun, introduction to birds (pointing and retrieving), here, launcher work, turning with name, introduction to backing, and introduction to hunting environment.  Most people don't realize the abilities of a young pup.  A puppy with good breeding and instincts is capable of pointing, backing and retrieving very early in life.  Your puppy will be worked and exposed to birds multiple times throughout each day.  Our hands on approach allows us to maximize the benefits of each session with your pup.  We encourage you to watch the other participants as they work with their dogs to gain a deeper understanding of our training methods.  

Clinics are limited to ten to twelve puppies to allow for more one on one instruction for you and your puppy.  The objective for these clinics is to advance you and your pup as far as possible in four days. You will be amazed by how much you and your puppy can achieve at a PERFECTION KENNEL CLINIC.  Puppy start is for confidence building and bringing out the natural instincts of your pup. Puppies are not taught whoa in this portion of our clinic however they are encouraged to attend a Perfect Finish Clinic to begin whoa training.  Special care is taken at this kennel to limit exposure to gunfire for waiting puppies, please keep your pup safely crated.

This is not a seminar where you just see the highlights of a program. This is an actual clinic that prepares your pup for hunting.
