If you own one of the Versatile breeds come train with us! If you are a novice you will move quickly to your goal of having a companion trained to hunt. If you are an experienced trainer you will have fun imparting your knowledge to those less experienced, and watching their dog blossom as yours has done. Plus it will keep your dog sharp for hunting season.
