Dog Training Classes in Salem, OR
We believe all dogs should perform the following skills well:
- Come to you when called.
- Stop and stay still until released.
- Go with you, hunt with you in the field, and heel.
Side by Side specializes in upland hunting dog training. Pointing and flushing breeds are both welcome. Our goal is to help your dog become the hunter you want them to be. All dogs will be trained to honor the flight of the bird and break on the report of the gun. Flushing dogs will be conditioned to sit on the flush and the pointing dogs will be conditioned to be steady to wing or steady to wing and shot. If your goal is to trial or hunt-test your dog, it will take more time to finish your dog to this level. We believe it is essential for the dog to be on birds every day and to be given quality repetition for them to learn best.
