Retriever Training Class in MN

7 posts in this topic

Anyone know of a retriever training class or 1 on 1 sessions available anywhere around the cities. I am working on training my pup by myself but would like some assistance in the more refined areas such as steady to gunfire, birds/live birds?

I am up in Monticello, I was also wondering this, or If anyone would like to train with, I know there was some other people that were looking down south. Any one want to get together as a group?

I live in Hanover and would possibly be interested. I am new to this though so would not provide any experience, just looking to gain. Let me know if anything gets going, my pup should be back in two weeks from training.

Af, when you get your pup back let me know how much your impressed or not, I need to send mine out. Mine is 10 weeks, how old is yours?

I live in Roseville, and have been just looking to see if anyone else knows of any classes or thing I could sign up for to help me in my training.

I am not looking for a dog that can win competitions but one that I can take hunting with me and it will retrieve my birds to me after I give it the command to go.

I can't remember the name but there is a class for pups that teaches obediance, hold, retrieve (land and water with gun shot), ect around the Monticello area. It's off of hyw 94...you go past a truck stop down a dirt road....they meet once a week. I will try and see if I have any old records of it and give you the name. I found this class when I was at game fair (5 years ago). I know that there will be opportunites at game fair for dog training and meeting dog trainers too. An option if you are not having any luck finding something.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
