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.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
